Philosophy in an Inclusive Key

The Philosophy in An Inclusive Key Institute

Designed to encourage undergraduates from underrepresented groups to consider future study of
philosophy, PISKI emphasizes the on-going project of greater inclusiveness that is transforming the
discipline, inviting students to be participants in the conversation. Along with works in feminist, critical race, disability, and queer theory, students will read historical and contemporary philosophical texts that explore recurring human concerns and investigate the ways in which experience informs philosophical reflection. In addition, writing assignments, visiting lecturers, and mentoring will help students learn that their own perspectives matter to philosophy.
