Lunch Chat (4/4): African American Philosophy

Professor Yancy
For the next Philosophy Lunch Chat, we're delighted to welcome Dr. George Yancy, Professor of Philosophy at Duquesne University, a specialist on critical philosophy of race, critical whiteness studies, and philosophy of the Black experience.

We'll have an informal discussion with Professor Yancy introducing the main themes and ideas of African American Philosophy. What is it? What issues or topics does it address? Why did this field of philosophy emerge? Why does it matter?

We hope you'll join us in the East Reading Room of the Library the Taylor Lounge (115 Taylor Hall — campus map) at noon on Thursday, April 4th, for pizza and an interesting discussion.
