Kent State Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) Chapter

Meeting Schedule for 2023-24

MAP (Minorities and Philosophy) is a club that meets virtually, usually on the first Wednesday of every month, from 6-7pm. We read an article or book chapter before each meeting and spend the hour discussing the reading and any topics that stem from that discussion. While MAP prioritizes readings about and/or from groups underrepresented in philosophy or related disciplines, all are welcome to participate. We hope to see you at a meeting!

All meetings will take place Wednesdays, 6:00-7:00pm on Teams. For further information, please email Kim Beasley at
