Colloquium: Charles Mills (The Graduate Center, City University of NY)

November 28 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm


ABSTRACT: “Racial Justice” is a term widely used in everyday discourse, but little explored in philosophy. In this paper, I look at racial justice as a concept, trying to bring out its complexities, and urging a greater engagement by mainstream political philosophers with the issues that it raises. After comparing it to other varieties of group justice and injustice, I periodize racial in/justice, relate it to European expansionism, and argue that a modified Rawlsianism relying on a different version of the thought-experiment could come up with suitable principles of corrective racial justice.
