With Elaine Coburn, Harry Glasbeek, Meg Holden and Charles Mills
This symposium is a lively discussion about philosopher Frank Cunningham’s Ideas in Context: Essays in Social and Political Theory (2021). The writings draw from a conversation held on May 29, 2021 by the Society for Socialist Studies as part of its annual conference. Featuring Harry Glasbeek, Meg Holden, the late Charles Mills and a response by Frank Cunningham, the conversation was an opportunity to engage with a life in ideas, as chronicled in Cunningham’s “non-memoir” (2021,4). Now shared here in written form, the symposium includes what may be the last contribution by Mills, a friend of half of century to Cunningham, known for his generosity of spirit and his trenchant theorizing of racial injustice (Mills 1997).
