The 2024 Iteration of the Northeast Workshop to Learn About Multicultural Philosophy (NEWLAMP) is a National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Institute for Higher Education Faculty focusing on Native American, Indigenous, and Land-Based Social and Political Philosophy.
The Northeast Workshop to Learn About Multicultural Philosophy (NEWLAMP) project is a yearly week-long summer workshop that aims to broaden philosophy undergraduate curricula, by equipping professors with the tools required to successfully integrate a traditionally underrepresented area of philosophy in their courses. In June 24-28, 2024, NEWLAMP is an NEH Institute for Higher Education Faculty hosted at Northeastern University, and focused on Native American, Indigenous and Land-Based Philosophy. Four Indigenous philosophers are leading the workshop, which will center on 5 key concepts in Indigenous resistance work: Sovereignty, Land, Decolonization, Indigenous Feminisms, and Cultural Reclamation.
In 2024, the NEWLAMP Workshop will be held at Northeastern University’s campus in Boston.
