Spring 2023 • Reading Group
Class and Racial Justice
Exam Type: No Exam
This reading group will focus on questions about how the idea of “racial justice” is related to “class.” When, if ever, are class-based redistributive measures insufficiently attentive to the interests of Black people or other historically oppressed groups? What is the best moral case for race-based reparations? Are socialism and “identity politics” compatible? In what sense, if any, is antiracism “neoliberal,” and is that a problem?
Note: This reading group will meet on the following dates: 1/24, 2/7, 2/21, 3/7, 3/28, 4/11.
