The California Roundtable on Philosophy and Race was begun in 2004. This roundtable is usually held during the end of September/beginning of October. During its first four years, the CRPR was alternatingly held on the campuses of University of San Francisco or California State Northridge in California, where its initial founders, Ronald Sundstrom and Gregory Velazco y Trianosky, respectively, held faculty appointments. Since then, the CRPR has gone national, but it has retained its original name to remember its roots.
This roundtable brings together philosophers of race, and those working in related fields in a small and congenial setting to share their work and to help further this sub-discipline of philosophy. Philosophical papers are invited on any issue regarding race, ethnicity, or racism, and including those that take up race in the context of another topic, such as feminism, political philosophy, ethics, justice, culture, identity, biology, phenomenology, existentialism, psychoanalysis, metaphysics, or epistemology.
Thanks to everyone who participated and made the 2013 Chicago meetings a huge success!

The California Roundtable on Philosophy and Race announces a call for papers for its 12th annual roundtable. This roundtable brings together philosophers of race in continental and analytic traditions, and those working in related disciplines in a small and congenial setting to share their work and to further develop this field. Philosophical papers are invited on any issue regarding race, ethnicity, or racism, including those that take up race in the context of another topic, such as feminism, political philosophy, ethics, justice, culture, identity, biology, phenomenology, existentialism, psychoanalysis, metaphysics, or epistemology.
We welcome submissions from all scholars interested in philosophy of race. Submissions are especially encouraged from junior and senior scholars, and philosophers of color. We seek to foster a productive and intellectually stimulating environment for those working in fields concerned with philosophy and race. The Roundtable also aspires to bring together junior and senior scholars to develop and enhance constructive mentoring relationships.
