Du Bois: The Lost and the Found,” published in 2020 with Polity Press, as well as essays that have recently appeared or are forthcoming in Kantian Review, Journal of Moral Philosophy, Critical Philosophy of Race, Journal of Political Philosophy, Social Theory & Practice, Philosophical Topics, and The Philosophical Forum.
