Critical Philosophy of Race

PHIL 211
Fall 2021 not offered
Crosslisting: AFAM 211
Course Cluster and Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory Certificate

This 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, as well as the historical role of race and racism in philosophical thinking, and by attending to the major debates currently held in this emerging tradition.
