Call for Papers – Critical Philosophy of Race: Beyond the USA

Call for papers for a proposed special issue of the Journal of Applied Philosophy.

japp-coverSince 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 the USA. This focus has given the false impression that the Critical Philosophy of Race is irrelevant outside the USA. To challenge this false impression, the Journal of Applied Philosophy proposes to publish a special issue, guest edited by Nathaniel Adam Tobias Coleman (UCL) and Albert Atkin (Macquarie), on the relevance of the Critical Philosophy of Race beyond the US experience.

Deadline for submissions: 31 January 2015.

Please address any initial enquiries about submissions to the guest editors:
Nathaniel Adam Tobias Coleman n.coleman@ucl.ac.uk
Albert Atkin albert.atkin@mq.edu.au

Submissions should be sent to jap@appliedphil.org

Guidelines for submissions can be found here.
