On Friday 28th October from 4:30pm to 5:30pm in the Anatomy Museum, KCL Minorities and Philosophy is hosting a panel on Diversity and Inclusion in Academic Philosophy!
We will be joined by current members of the department Dr Jessica Leech, Dr James Stazicker, Dr Alexander Franklin and GTA Chiara Zucchelli, along with KCL Alumnus Naomi Snow and anti-racist activist Annabelle Woghiren. Dr Jessica Leech is the Arts and Humanities Diversity and Inclusion Representative, and Dr Alexander Franklin teaches the ‘Philosophy of Race’ Module, assisted by Chiara, who founded the Phi Magazine in 2018. Naomi was funded to write a research project on ‘decolonising the Philosophy curriculum’ whilst an undergraduate, and Annabelle has consulted with social enterprises and public institutions on race equality, along with maintaining an education and community platform of over 115,000 on social media.
We’ll be asking questions like, ‘why is diversity important to academic philosophy, other than equal opportunity?’ and ‘why does diversity among Philosophy students dip at graduate level?’
Register your interest here! We hope to see you there.
