Africana philosophy is now closer to the mainstream of professional philosophy than ever before. The ‘Articulating Africana Philosophy’ conference will celebrate this development while also taking stock of the field’s current status and future prospects. We will consider questions like these: What are the prospects for publishing Africana philosophical research? Does this research take intersectionality seriously enough? How far has the field really come since the struggles of its pioneers? And has the ‘Africana’ idea outlived its usefulness?
November 4-5, 2011
The conference is free to attend and is open to the public.
