Upcoming Session on "Biological Collectivism and the Politics of Racial Identity"

James G Lennox

As co-secretary of the Society and chair of this year’s session, I cordially invite people attending this year’s American Philosophical Association-Eastern Division meeting at the Washington D.C. Marriott Wardman Park Hotel to this year’s meeting of the Ayn Rand Society. The session will take place on Thursday, January 7th from 5:15-7:15 p.m. (The specific room has not been announced, but will be available at the meeting.) Details of the session are given below:

Title: "Biological Collectivism and the Politics of Racial Identity"
Speaker: Professor Jason D. Hill (DePaul University)
Commentator: Dr. Gregory Salmeri (Rutgers University)
Chair: Professor James G. Lennox (University of Pittsburgh)

The official policy of the APA is that those attending sessions must be registered for the conference—and registration is costly. In the past, the APA has sometimes waived the registration requirement or offered a discounted registration fee to people who wish to attend a single session, but this has never been a consistent policy. People in the area considering attending only this session should check with the APA about their current policy.

UPDATE: The ARS session this afternoon (Thursday, January 7th) will be in Maryland A on the lobby level of the hotel.
