Midwest Race Theory Workshop

The Midwest Race Theory Workshop is a regional organization that connects faculty and graduate students who work in critical philosophy of race. MRTW was co-founded and is co-organized by Elizabeth Millán (De Paul), José Medina (Northwestern), Jaqueline Scott (Loyola), and Grant Silva (Marquette). MRTW meets quarterly for a full day of paper presentations and discussions of works in progress. This academic year we held meetings at Loyola (in November), De Paul (in February), and Northwestern (April). The April 6th meeting at Northwestern included presentations from faculty and graduate students at UNAM-Mexico, De Paul, Loyola, Marquette, and Northwestern. Marzouq Alnusf (Northwestern) presented one of the featured papers entitled “Behind the 'Seen': A Critique of Al-Saji's Account of Racializing Vision and Hesitation.”
