The Department of Philosophy's current EDI initiatives include:
Athena Swan: The Philosophy Department has been awarded Bronze. The department is currently working on action plans from that submission. The Department is also working with other departments in the Faculty of Arts and Humanities.
Decolonisation: The Philosophy Department is committed to decolonising our curriculum. To that end, we have had one workshop for teaching staff in November 2022 (led by Aness Webster). We also have a student Decolonisation Intern, Michaela Makusha.
Michaela Makusha, 3rd year Philosophy and Politics student and Decolonisation intern for the Philosophy Department, created this Decolonisation Zine as a side project with the aim of wanting philosophy to be more accessible.
