Committee: Hispanics

Committee Charge

The committee is charged with assessing and reporting on the status of Hispanics and Latinos/as in the profession. Among its responsibilities are to identify unfair or discriminatory practices affecting Hispanic or Latino/a philosophers in their professional work and to apprise the board and the members of the association of ways in which they may be rectified; to advise Hispanic and Latino/a philosophers concerning means of overcoming discrimination that they may encounter; and to make reports and recommendations to the board concerning ways in which full and meaningful equality of opportunity can be provided to all individuals who seek to study, teach, or conduct research in philosophy. The committee is also concerned with teaching and research. It seeks to facilitate an understanding of issues of cultural diversity, identity, and difference and of the range of contributions to philosophy offered by Hispanics. The committee compiles a list of Hispanics and Latinos/as in philosophy. This committee is also responsible for the annual selection of the winner of the Essay Prize in Latin American Thought for the best unpublished, English-language, philosophical essay in Latin American thought.   

The committee also publishes the Newsletter on Hispanic/Latino Issues in Philosophy, the editor of which serves in an ex officio capacity on the committee.
