The Northeast Workshop to Learn About Multicultural Philosophy (NEWLAMP) is holding a summer institute to equip philosophy teachers with competency to ingrate traditionally underrepresented areas of philosophy into their courses. This project works toward remedying the issue of solely discussing “Western”, Anglo-European philosophy and attempting to teach areas such as African or Islamic philosophy. In the past year NEWLAMP focused on African and Africana social and political philosophy. By doing this NEWLAMP thinks that it will raise interesest in the philosophy major and ultimately transform it. Click HERE to read more about this workshop and its ideas.
