THE CLIMATE OF RACE

8-9 August 2012

This Advanced Research Seminar is organized jointly with The Rock Ethics Institute and the Philosophy Department at Pennsylvania State University.    

The seminar will cover themes including climate, race and migration; time and temperature; cities and the Anthropocene; extinction, destruction and apocalyptic imaginaries; and ‘posthuman’ erasures of race.  

One of its goals is to plan for a special issue of Critical Philosophy of Race entitled “Race in the Age of the Anthropocene”. 

There will be a public debate on “The Climate of Racism”, which will feature Eduardo Mendietta, Robert Bernasconi, Nancy Tuana, Sarah Nuttall and Achille Mbembe.

Please contact Prof Sarah Nuttall (sarah.nuttall@wits.ac.za) if you are interested in attending or would like a copy of the programme.
