Critical Philosophy of Race: Here and Now

Start: Jun 5, 2014 12:00:00 AM
End: Jun 6, 2014 12:00:00 AM

Since the publication, in 1992, of Professor Kwame Anthony Appiah's In my father's house: Africa in the Philosophy of Culture, the new discipline of the Critical Philosophy of Race has flourished among anglophone analytic philosophers. Yet, Critical Philosophers of Race have tended to confine themselves to an analysis of racial problems that arise in the politics, and against the historical background, of anglophone North America. This parochial focus has given the false impression that the Critical Philosophy of Race is irrelevant outside of the USA and Canada. For this reason, in this, the first of three annual international conferences on the Critical Philosophy of Race, we will challenge this false impression, by showcasing work that demonstrates the relevance of the Critical Philosophy of Race (a) to the British Isles. Future conferences will showcase work that demonstrates the relevance of the Critical Philosophy of Race (b) to the European Union and (c) to the wider world outside of anglophone North America. The aim of these three conferences is, successively, to globalise the Critical Philosophy of Race.

Britain, France & Africa: Legacies, Entanglements and Cultural Trajectories of Decolonization and Beyond

Britan France Africa Poster
The legacies of colonialism are as hotly debated as the struggle for independence was contested. Cultural, political and financial entanglement remained long after 1960 in a hazily defined ‘postcolonial moment’ which has coloured our interpretation of these events. This conference will try to tease out these transnational bonds, articulating the mindsets, beliefs and perceptions which governed the contested decolonization process for Britain and France. The reality of different aims, different beliefs and different modernities did not belie common features which linked this process across time and continents.
