Anti-Racism and the Disciplines: Lionel McPherson (Philosophy)

Uptown Campus
Myra Clare Rogers Memorial Chapel

2021–22 SLA Dean's Speaker Series:
Anti-Racism and the Disciplines

Many of the liberal arts disciplines have complicated relationships to structural racism, colonialism, and/or imperialism, which arguably are structured into the “rules” of the disciplines themselves. Scholars working in those disciplines, including those featured in the series, are working to uncover those histories in the effort of thinking about and staging work for the next generation(s) of scholars.

Featuring Lionel McPherson, Associate Professor of Philosophy at Tufts University
When: Tuesday, October 12, 2021, at 6pm
Rogers Chapel
