CFP – Anti-Racist Politics and Social Crisis

Please see the attached Call for Papers via Radical Philosophy Review

Radical Philosophy Review (RPR) seeks contributions to an ongoing discussion of the issues facing anti-racist politics in the US. Racism is so pervasive that none of the grave social issues facing contemporary society can be addressed without identifying it as a constitutive feature of economic, political, and cultural life. What does this imply for anti-racist politics in general and the response to the public health, environmental, economic, and political crises in particular? For philosophers, these are questions about appropriate concepts and forms of understanding as well as about the practical roles and responsibilities of intellectuals.
