Filippo Contesi (BIAP) is Beatriu de Pinós Postdoctoral Fellow in the LOGOS Research Group in Analytic Philosophy, University of Barcelona. He has drafted the Barcelona Principles for a Globally Inclusive Philosophy (BP) manifesto calling on all philosophers to address, in their work as scholars, editors, and members of departments, of hiring committees and scholarly societies, the structural disadvantages that non-native speakers have in academic philosophy. In this interview, Contesi discusses his inspiration for the petition, how his linguistic background has shaped his experience in the discipline, and what comes next in this project.
