The Department of Philosophy welcomes Linda Martin Alcoff presenting “The Future of Whiteness.” Is racism constitutive of white identity? If we imagine this to be the case, does it eclipse the scope of future transformations of white identity, making them literally unimaginable? What are the future possibilities for white identity? This is not just an effort at prediction, as if whiteness is some natural phenomena we can only observe from a distance. Whiteness is an identity born of both history and current practices, so the question of the future is a question about what we should do now, a question constrained in turn by what we can do now. Free and open to the public.
