This is a workshop for interested graduate students and faculty. 

J. Reid Miller is Associate Professor of Philosophy and Comparative Literature at Haverford College. He is the author of the book Stain Removal: Ethics and Race (Oxford University Press, 2016). Engaging a wide range of theorists and writings from the Biblical story of Ham, to Socrates, Immanuel Kant, Alain Locke, Onora O'Neill, Frantz Fanon, Langston Hughes, and Louis Althusser, Stain Removal crosses disciplinary boundaries to advance a compelling theory of the evaluative nature of all representation. It employs the framework of race to reconsider key premises about how subjects are ethically interpreted. Miller has also published in Critical Inquiry and Philosophy and Social Criticism. He received his PhD in History of Consciousness at University of California Santa Cruz.

Organized by the Department of Comparative Studies
