The Constructive View of Reparations
Friday, January 24, 2020
3:00-5:00 PM
1171 Angell Hall Map
The constructive view of reparations for global racial empire is a view about distribution. It is, specifically, a view about what should inform the distribution of the benefits and burdens of a particular process: the transitional process of creating a just world order out of the material and opportunities set by our current unjust status quo and its attendant history. In this talk I will discuss my positive view of reparations, sketch the space of alternatives, and discuss the constructive view's implications.
