The California Roundtable on Philosophy and Race announces a call for papers for its 19th annual meetings. This roundtable brings together philosophers of race and those working in related disciplines in a small and congenial setting to share their work. Philosophical papers are invited on any issue regarding race, ethnicity, or racism, including those that take up race in the context of another topic, such as gender, sexuality, politics, ethics, justice, culture, identity, biology, phenomenology, existentialism, psychoanalysis, metaphysics, or epistemology.

We seek to foster a productive and intellectually stimulating environment for those working in fields concerned with philosophy and race. The Roundtable also aspires to bring together junior and senior scholars to develop and enhance constructive mentoring relationships.

Please confirm your ability to attend on your submission. We ask accepted participants who withdraw their papers after acceptance to refrain from submitting for two years.
