*Call for Entries - AAP Innovation in Inclusive Curricula Prize *
The Australasian Association of Philosophy (AAP) awards an annual prize of
$500 for the development of innovative approaches to teaching philosophy.
First awarded in 2014, the prize is offered with a view to exploring ways
in which undergraduate courses in philosophy can build the understanding
and practise of an inclusive discipline, concerned to foster equal
participation in the profession. The aims of the prize are to encourage

consider critically how philosophy is presented, and to be innovative in
implementing practices of teaching that off-set well-known disparities of
participation in the discipline, for instance along race and gender lines.
Previous winners include Alexandre Lefebvre (University of Sydney), Ruth
Boeker (University of Melbourne) and Michelle Sowey (The Philosophy Club).
The prize will be awarded at the opening of the annual AAP conference in
This Prize is sponsored by Taylor and Francis, publisher of the
Australasian Journal of Philosophy and the Australasian Philosophical
