In December, the APA Committee on Inclusiveness in the Profession put out a call for teaching materials bearing on any area of philosophy among those that have traditionally been underrepresented in the curriculum. In response, over 75 syllabi have been submitted to date, including courses specifically focused on diversity as well as courses with modules on diversity. Syllabi cover areas such as the following:

  • African/Africana and African-American Philosophy
  • Asian and Asian-American Philosophy
  • Feminist Philosophy
  • Indigenous Philosophy
  • Islamic Philosophy
  • Latin American Philosophy
  • LGBTQ Philosophy
  • Multicultural/World Philosophies
  • Philosophy and Disability
  • Philosophy of Gender
  • Philosophy of Race

The syllabi are now available on the APA website and may be used as resources for those teaching philosophy to create more diverse and inclusive courses. This is an ongoing project, and additional syllabi will be added as they are received.

To contribute a syllabus for inclusion on the APA website, please complete the syllabus submission form.

By submitting syllabi, you will be helping to promote diversity in the profession. Thank you for participating in this important project!
