Themes relevant to this special issue are the role of race, ethnicity, colonialism, colonial slavery, eurocentrism, white ignorance and universalism in Hegel’s thought, and the historical context of such aspects in Hegel’s thought; Hegel’s impact both on racist/pro-colonialist and anti-racist/anti-colonialist thought; and the place of these topics in academic teaching on Hegel.

The special issue is planned as double issue.
