  • Unmasking the Big Bluff of Legitimate Governance and So-Called
           Independence: Creolizing Rousseau through the Reflections of Anna Julia
           Cooper
    • Abstract: Creolization as a concept was first coined to describe what struck observers as a surprising and distinctive phenomenon underway in the Caribbean of the early sixteenth through nineteenth centuries. Specifically, non-indigenous peoples who had come to the region voluntarily and involuntarily, while committed to remaining as they had been, instead transformed sometimes radically and always rapidly. Crucially, what typically precipitated the shifts was precisely a desire to remain the same. How to square this circle' Continuing practices borne of other environments required creative substitutions in these new circumstances. And in these new situations existing forms of life took on altered meaning.This birthing of ... Read More

  • The Composite Community: Thinking Through Fanon's Critique of a Narrow
           Nationalism
    • Abstract: This article brings Frantz Fanon's caution against a regressive form of nationalism into conversation with Édouard Glissant's conception of the composite community. In Fanon's case, the concern was about the conditions upon which articulations of postcolonial independence across the continent of Africa might manifest their nationalisms in ways that avoid the kind of essentialism and xenophobia that grounded much of the violence of colonial rule. Glissant, though not explicitly driven by the question of the nation, conceived of the composite community as a model for living with the radical diversity characteristic of communities in the Antilles. I bring these two together (Fanon's critique of a narrow nationalism ... Read More

  • The Race-Religion Constellation: A European Contribution to the Critical
           Philosophy of Race
    • Abstract: Racism is an institutionalized system with a wide-range of exclusionary practices that constantly changes forms and adapts itself (Bernasconi 2012; Bonilla-Silva 1997). As such, it is essential to philosophically investigate possible new forms or adaptations. Perhaps the most urgent task in the field of critical philosophy of race is to make visible what is being hidden. By focusing on what Du Bois defined as the color line, critical race theory has also created a new field, critical whiteness studies, which seeks to make whiteness visible (Aanerud et al. 1997; Klinenberg and Wray 2001; S. Ahmed 2004; Nayak 2007; Applebaum 2016). In this article I seek to reveal the hidden race-religion constellation, which Du Bois ... Read More

  • Race and the Senses: Toward Articulating the Sensory Apparatus of Race
    • Abstract: We find ourselves at a historical moment when the ongoing effort toward dismantling racism is ever more complex and urgent. Race continues to hold its hegemonic and material presence despite the abundance of knowledge, critique, and popular discourse that deconstruct the mechanism of social construction of race and racial hierarchy. In the process of critiquing the system of racism, however, little attention has been paid to how race is felt or sensed on and through the body. How is the materiality of race reproduced phenomenologically through the perceptual sight of our eyes, on the tactile surface of our skin, and through other sensory capacities that actively seek and absorb information on the surrounding social ...

  • Dark Ghettos: Injustice, Dissent, and Reform by Tommie Shelby (review)
    • Abstract: The continued existence of ghettos in the United States demands that we reflect on the nature of our political values and whether the basic structure of our society is fundamentally just or unjust. Tommie Shelby's Dark Ghettos intends to provide "a detailed defense of the values and principles that . . . should (and sometimes do) guide grassroots efforts and policy prescriptions" (7) in addressing the injustice of ghettos. Though there are social-scientific studies that lead to proposals of rectification there is "[o]ften missing . . . sufficient critical reflection on the values that should guide such proposals" (ibid.). For one may look at the ghetto and intuitively assert that there is something wrong there. But ... Read More

  • Theorizing Race in the Americas: Douglass, Sarmiento, Du Bois, and
           Vasconcelos by Juliet Hooker (review)
    • Abstract: Juliet Hooker's Theorizing Race in the Americas: Douglass, Sarmiento, Du Bois, and Vasconcelos (2017) is an outstanding scholarly work within contemporary political philosophy. While the book itself offers a compelling set of analyses regarding race, national and pan-national identities, and democratic theory, it is Hooker's scope, methodological innovativeness, and theoretical complexity that make the work exceptional. Hooker's analytic focus addresses political theory across several U.S. African American and Latin American contexts, and provides a novel approach to the study of four major figures within these respective fields. Namely, the book surveys the writings of Frederick Douglass, Domingo Faustino ... Read More

  • Intersectionality: Origins, Contestations, Horizons by Anna Carastathis
           (review)
    • Abstract: Though it has been nearly thirty years since the inception of Kimberlé Crenshaw's work on intersectionality, the depth of her intersectional critique has yet to be fully mined. Two main lines of inquiry have emerged. On the one hand, there is an abundance of work identifying and operationalizing "intersectionality" as a representationalist theory of identity wherein the addition of multiple social markers generates an "intersectional identity" that had hitherto been ignored or foreclosed. On the other hand, much work has critiqued intersectionality by claiming that it merely reproduces, via additive logics, the conception of identities as discrete, which "intersectionality" ought to contest. Roderick Ferguson ... Read More
