Philosophy of Race & Racism: On the Concept of White Privilege
Join us for this free sample class, one of a series of summer sample classes for prospective students.
This class session asks: how can philosophical tools of reasoning and argument help better understand the concept of white privilege--and socio-political privilege more generally--as well as the often contentious public discourse around white privilege? We will draw on the classic paper by Peggy McIntosh "White Privilege: Unpacking the Invisible Knapsack," recent
philosophical work on the notion of privilege, and our own experiences talking about the idea of white privilege in everyday life.
Taught by Assistant Professor of Philosophy Amanda Roth.
