Thinking About Aesthetics
Associate Professor, Department of Philosophy, DePaul University
Darrell Moore was educated at Northwestern University. He teaches and conducts research in the areas of aesthetics, political philosophy, and critical race theory. He is interested in the ways in which philosophy's project of modernity contributed to the idea of race as well as the ways in which race is at work in modern and contemporary political theory and aesthetics. He is also interested in the tensions created by the confluence of Black diasporic thought with the major texts and arguments of modern political and aesthetic theory. He was a Fellow at the Frederick Douglass Institute at the University of Rochester in 1998-1999. At present he is finishing a manuscript entitled Aesthetics and Agency: On Beauty, Race, and the Practices of Freedom.
