Presentation: Race and the Mind-Culture Nexus

Exeuctive Director Wesley Wildman and Research Associate LeRon Shults
The Institute for American Religious and Political Thought 2017 Annual Conference: Antiblackness, Race and Philosophy
June 13, 2017

Conference Summary: We invite proposals that address the relations among antiblackness, race-making, and religious and philosophical thought. As the truism holds, “race” is a construct. But constructs are real—every bit as real as rocks and minds. Constructs, such as race, are the sum of their effects: consequent rather than antecedent realities, historical products of our practices, theories, and judgments.
