Inclusive Philosophy Pedagogy: What Is It and How Do We Achieve It?

The American Association of Philosophy Teachers (AAPT) and the American Philosophical Association (APA) Committee on Inclusiveness in the Profession seek proposals for twenty-five minute presentations to be included in two complementary joint panels to be held at the 2015 APA Central Division meeting, which will occur Feb. 18-21 at the Hilton St. Louis At The Ballpark in St. Louis, Missouri.

The sessions, “Inclusive Philosophy Pedagogy: What Is It and How Do We Achieve It?,” are intended both to theorize (and perhaps problematize) the very notion of inclusive Philosophy pedagogy and to provide audience members with tools and resources to help them make their own Philosophy pedagogy more inclusive. Thus, both theoretical and practical approaches to the theme are warmly welcomed.

Please send a 300 word abstract of your proposed presentation in .doc, .docx, .rtf, or .pdf to Shannon Dea sjdea at uwaterloo dot ca by no later than 15 September 2014. Please prepare your submission for anonymous review, including removing any identifying information from the document properties. You can indicate your name, affiliation and contact information in the main body of your covering email.

*The AAPT and the Inclusiveness Committee are eager to assemble a demographically diverse panel. If you are a member of an underrepresented group and wish to identify yourself as such, please include this information too in the covering email.

Authors can expect to receive a decision by early October, 2014.

Please direct any questions about these panels to Shannon Dea (sjdea at uwaterloo dot ca).
