Calling UK and European philosophers working on. . .

Miranda Fricker, Jennifer Saul, and Holly Lawford-Smith at the University of Sheffield are interested in hearing from anyone with an interest in epistemological, metaphysical and normative issues that touch on, apply to, or might be extended to, Philosophy of Race broadly construed. Their own interests range over issues of social construction, culpable ignorance, implicit bias, political speech and manipulation, historic injustice, racial privilege, and rectificatory justice. But race touches on many other areas of philosophy besides these, and they’re keen to hear from anyone and everyone who thinks they might have something to contribute! At the moment they’re just keen to hear from people so that we can put a list together, with a view to future workshops and research events. It would be great if you could tell them your name, institutional affiliation, and a little about the research interests you have that relate or might come to relate to Philosophy of Race. You can email them at: sheffphilrace@gmail.com.

  1. Just to signal this interesting paper/research note, recently appeared in the journal “Critical Philosophy of Race”:

    Botts, Bright, Cherry, Mallarangeg, Spencer (2014), “What Is the State of Blacks in Philosophy?”, Critical Philosophy of Race, 2 (2), pp. 224–242;

    As well as other papers in that very journal (which I have recently discovered).

  2. Dear dr. Lawford-Smith, of course I am also interested in these issues myself, although I am not an expert. Please keep me updated. Vins.
