The California Roundtable on Philosophy and Race announces a call for
papers for its seventh annual roundtable. This roundtable brings
together philosophers of race, and those working in related fields in
a small and congenial setting to share their work and to help further
this sub-discipline of philosophy. Philosophical papers are invited
on any issue regarding race, ethnicity, or racism, and including
those that take up race in the context of another topic, such as
feminism, political philosophy, ethics, justice, culture, identity,
biology, phenomenology, existentialism, psychoanalysis, metaphysics,
or epistemology.

Submissions are encouraged from junior scholars and philosophers of
color. We seek to foster a productive and intellectually stimulating
environment for those working in philosophy and race. The Roundtable
also aspires to bring together junior and senior scholars to develop
and enhance constructive mentoring relationships.

Submission Deadline: Feb 24, 2012
