DETAILS

The deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tamir Rice and others have given rise to the need for a deeper conversation about race—a conversation to which philosophy is well equipped to contribute. In contributing to this necessary conversation, two members of the philosophy department present a conference. This conference has the aim of elucidating positions within academic discussions of, as well as evoke thought about, race. The conference will engage a broad range of questions from a philosophical perspective but will do so in a way that can be appreciated by both those interested in disciplines other than philosophy as well as a broader public audience. Sponsored by the Humanities Center and the Values Institute. Coordinated by Corey Barnes, PhD, and Marilynn Johnson, PhD, from the Department of Philosophy.
