Philosophy Casting Call

Have you ever heard of Plato, Aristotle, Socrates? Well, this is not about them! Philosophy Casting Call is where Élaina Gauthier-Mamaril, your friendly neighbourhood philosopher, interviews professors, grad students, and non-academics to find out what philosophy looks like now and try to shine a spotlight on thinkers, topics, and themes that are historically marginalised in academic philosophy. This includes women, LGBTQIA, disabled, and BIPOC people who are out there, getting their philosophy on, and who deserved to be cast as philosophers in our culture.
