Diversity in Philosophy Courses

APA Syllabi on Underrepresented Areas of Philosophy
(for members of the APA)

The APA's Committee on Inclusiveness in the Profession is collecting and posting syllabi to be used as resources for those teaching philosophy  to create more diverse and inclusive courses.  If you are a member of the APA, you may access these syllabi here.

Diversifying Syllabi
Diversifying Syllabi is a compilation of philosophical texts on a variety of topics, written by diverse practioners, and appropriate for undergraduate courses.  Tried and tested by the "Diversifying Syllabi 101" reading group at Georgetown University.

Underrepresented Philosophers Database
The purpose of the Underrepresented Philosophers Database is to collect the names and works of philosophers underrepresented in philosophy courses at the undergraduate level.  By incorporating more works by philosophers belonging to typically underrepresented groups, it may be possible to combat stereotype threat and improve retention of women, persons of color, and others who are historically minorities in philosophy.  Through this website, you may 
        -  add names of, and works by, underrepresented philosophers
        -  search for philosophers (by a number of criteria)
        -  view demographic information for the philosophers.

This website was created and is maintained by Malcolm Keating.


Diversity Syllabi Project

The APA CSW is gathering syllabi from philosophy courses that have a substantial focus on diversity issues. The goal is to provide an online resource for instructors who would like to teach a course on a specific diversity issue (such as African American Philosophy, American Indian Philosophy, Asian Philosophy, Feminist Philosophy, Philosophy of Disability, Philosophy & Multiculturalism, LGBT Philosophy, etc.) or who would like to incorporate some readings and class assignments on these issues into a more general philosophy course. The collection of syllabi also highlights the fact that diversity scholarship within philosophy is varied, substantial, and growing, and that there are many books, articles, films, and websites that can be used to teach about these issues. If you have a syllabus from a course or courses that focus on diversity issues, broadly construed, that you would like to contribute to this project, please send it as an email attachment in Word to apa.csw.mail@gmail.com. Please include in the body of the email a statement giving the APA permission to post your syllabi.
