Welcome to MAP LSE!

MAP stands for Minorities And Philosophy. It is a global network of philosophy students and staff working to represent and help people from backgrounds that has been traditionally underrepresented in philosophy (such as disabled people, ethnic minorities, first generation university students, LGBTQIA+, neurodiverse, women, or working class), and make philosophy more accessible and inclusive. The global homepage is here, and the UK homepage is here. Our own LSE MAP webpage is here.

We are the LSE chapter of this global network. We organise events to change things for the better in our department: socials to buld a community of philosophers from underrepresented backgrounds; advice sessions about applying for further study in philosophy; representation in departmental committees.

On this page, you can find general resources on these topics, and information about our events. 

If you have any questions, or think MAP or the Philosophy Department should be doing anything differently, please contact us at philosophy.map.committee@lse.ac.uk.
