Petition: Philosophy of Race in the PGR

For those of you who have not yet seen it, I'd like to encourage you to consider signing this petition, advocating for the inclusion of the Philosophy of Race as a specialty in the Philosophical Gourmet Report.  There is some discussion of the petition here, at Feminist Philosophers.  One note I'd add is that a number of departments that are already highly esteemed by the PGR — including, by my count, six of the top seven programs in the overall rankings, which says something — have people doing interesting and important work in this area, as do a number of other departments.  In any event, it is a thriving, important field, which anecdotal evidence suggests has increasing interest for potential graduate students and hiring schools.
