Under-representation in academic philosophy is an overwhelming phenomenon. While I do not research in this area, I actively promote inclusiveness and cultural openness. Complementarily, I support groups and initiatives that tackle abusive and discriminatory behaviours against minorities (here broadly understood). To accomplish these aims, I’ve been a member of the Department of Philosophy of the University of Glasgow’s Minorities and Philosophy (MAP) network since 2016. I strongly recommend visiting its webpage. It contains relevant information and useful links . At pain of redundancy, I will copy them also below.
