The Montreal Workshop in Critical Philosophy of Race brings together scholars working at the intersection of critical philosophies of race, immigration, and disability. These are three traditionally underrepresented areas in philosophy that are today finding critical resurgence. This is the first workshop to be hosted by the Department of Philosophy at McGill with focus on these crucial philosophical questions, and represents an opening for faculty, graduate students, and undergraduate students to spend time mulling them over.

The workshop will take place over one and a half days (starting Friday afternoon, November 15, and continuing all day Saturday, November 16). The workshop includes five speakers with commentaries on each paper (see abstracts below). There will be a roundtable of participants at the close of the workshop to allow time to reflect on the connections that can be woven between interventions. The workshop is pluralist in its methodologies, crossing philosophical and disciplinary boundaries. It aims to expand our understanding of critical philosophy of race.

Friday, Nov. 15, 2019: starts 2:30 PM

Saturday, Nov. 16, 2019: all day

The workshop is open to the public (by free registration) and accessible.
