Introduction to Critical Philosophy of Race
PHIL 111
Fall 2016
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: AFAM 111

This first-year seminar course will examine contemporary figures in the emerging field of critical philosophy of race. We will attempt to examine what contributions (if any) the critical philosophy of race has provided not only to philosophy as a discipline, but also to more traditional and established modes of thinking race and racism. We will do so by exploring issues such as the differences between critical philosophy of race and critical race theory, the historical role of race and racism in philosophical thinking, and by attending to the major debates currently held in this emerging tradition.
