Join us online or in-person for the Contemporary Philosophy of Race Conference! Philosophy of race as a broad field examines issues raised by the concept of race, the practices and processes of racialization, and the persistence of various forms of racism across the world and throughout history. Contemporary philosophers of race face the logics and orders of racial capitalism, coloniality, and anti-Blackness. Following Ruth Wilson Gilmore’s repeated assertion that scholarship and activism cannot be cleaved apart, they study and struggle against these structures and horizons of social life by opposing racism and oppression in all forms. This conference brings together such philosophers of race from around the globe, to provide space for intellectual and political study, collaboration, and relationship-building. We will be hosting 13 scholars who will present papers based on accepted abstracts, alongside 2 invited keynote speakers. Please note that Katherine McKittrick's keynote lecture has been cancelled.
