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 US 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.

Confirmed speakers:

Dr Robert Bernasconi (Prof of Philosophy & African American Studies, Penn State)
Dr Meena Dhanda (Reader in Philosophy and Cultural Politics, Wolverhampton)
Dr Brian Klug (Senior Research Fellow and Tutor in Philosophy, Oxford)
Dr Gabriella Beckles-Raymond (philosopher and educational administrator)
Dr Albert Atkin (Senior Lecturer in Philosophy, Macquarie)
Dr Nicholas Kwesi Tsri (Postdoctoral Fellow in Social Justice, UCD)
Dr Annabelle Lever (Associate Professor of Normative Political Theory, Geneva)
Dr Nathaniel Adam Tobias Coleman (Fellow, ICwS & Research Associate in Philosophy, UCL)
