Keynote Speaker

Dr. Bernard Boxill

Dr. Bernard Boxill holds the Pardue Professorship in the Philosophy Department at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he has been a faculty member since 1986. He has written on race issues, reparations, affirmative action, and distributivism, among other subjects. A partial list of his publications can be found on his homepage at Chapel Hill. He recently edited a volume entitled Race and Racism which contains landmark essays by Lucius Outlaw (a previous keynote at our conference), Ned Block, Ronald Dworkin, K.A. Appiah, and our own Marilyn Frye, as well as other race theorists. Dr. Boxill received the Tanner Faculty Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching in 2002 at UNC.
