The Centre for Ethics presents

Radical Black Political Thought in the 20th and 21st Centuries

Working with and through a black radical/critical intellectual and political tradition, this talk–hosted by the Department of Social Justice Education, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education–will map another genealogy of critical theory which posits that the central issues of our time are our modes of production of the human and freedom. It will argue that contemporary black radical political thought (including the contributions of WEB DuBois, Sylvia Wynter, Frantz Fanon and Aimé Césaire) opens up spaces for the reframing of current critical theory.

Speaker:

Professor Anthony Bogues, Asa Messer Professor of Humanities and Critical Theory, Professor of Africana Studies & Director of the Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice (CSSJ), Brown University

This event is free and open to all. Registration is not required. For further information, please contact the Centre for Ethics at 416 946-6288
