Just philosophy 3: Race, Gender, and Class in Philosophical Practice


For most of the history of Philosophy, members of several social groups including women, members of racial and ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities, have been actively excluded from the discipline or forced to operate on its margins. This annual workshop is motivated by the thought that in order for the present-day practice of Philosophy to be truly just, we, as members of the discipline, must confront this discriminatory past and actively work to overcome its continuing effects, which include the under-representation of women, racial and ethnic minorities, and people with disabilities (among others) at all levels. Sessions will focus on practical efforts to address this issue and we hope to provide an opportunity to discuss challenges, share strategies, and think about avenues for further investigation. 

The speakers are: Liam Kofi Bright, Meena Dhanda, and Anne-Marie McCallion. This event is co-organised with my colleagues Katharine Jenkins and Ian James Kidd
