CFP: “Racism and Colonialism in Hegel’s Philosophy” (Hegel Bulletin Special Issue)

We are glad to give notice that the Call for Papers Racism and Colonialism in Hegel’s Philosophy for a Special Issue of Hegel Bulletin, guest edited by Daniel James and Franz Knappik is now open.

The deadline for submitting the extended abstracts for planned papers (ca. 1000 words) is set on October 31st, 2021.

Submissions should be in English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian and German.


The Hegel Bulletin will publish a special issue devoted to the topic of ‘Racism and Colonialism in Hegel’s Philosophy’, following a workshop in April 2022. We welcome contributions that explore racist and pro-colonialist elements in Hegel’s philosophy, their historical and systematic context, and the role of these topics in Hegel’s legacy.

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.

All papers (8.000-10.000 words, notes and bibliography included) will be double-blind refereed.

Please find here more information concerning the call.
