ABOUT Dr. Tommy J. Curry

Education

Ph.D: Philosophy, Southern Illinois University Carbondale, December 2008.
M.A.: Philosophy, DePaul University, June 2004.

Areas of Interest

Critical Race Theory and Africana Philosophy
Anti-Colonial Economic Thought and Colonial Sexuality Studies 
Social/Political Philosophy, specifically Civil Rights Jurisprudence
Biomedical Ethics of Investigational Treatments and the Ethics of Pain and Suffering

Tommy J. Curry’s work spans across the various fields of philosophy, jurisprudence, Africana Studies, and Gender Studies. Though trained in American and Continental philosophical traditions, Curry’s primary research interests are in Critical Race Theory and Africana Philosophy. In Critical Race Theory, Curry looks at the work of Derrick Bell and his theory of racial realism as an antidote to the proliferating discourses of racial idealism that continue to uncritically embrace liberalism through the appropriation of European thinkers as the basis of racial reconciliation in the United States. In Africana philosophy, Curry’s work turns an eye towards the conceptual genealogy (intellectual history) of African American thought from 1800 to the present, with particular attention towards the scholars of the American Negro Academy and the Negro Society for Historical Research.

In Biomedical ethics, Curry is primarily interested government regulation, the ethical limits of government intervention in the practice of medicine, and democratic potentialities that arise from collaborative doctor-patient diagnoses and regenerative medicine like stem cells. Currently his research focuses on the linking the conceptualization of ethics found in the Belmont Report to Civil Rights and social justice paradigms.

OUR COMMON GROUND with Janice Graham 

Saturday, September 21, 2013       10 pm ET

 

 

"Black Liberation, Civil Rights and Social Justice"

Guest: Dr. Tommy J. Curry

Janice and Dr. Curry will discuss his theory of racial realism as an antidote to the proliferating discourses of racial idealism that continue to uncritically embrace liberalism through the appropriation of European thinkers as the basis of racial reconciliation in the United States.

 

Dr. Curry writes, ". . . Ida B. Wells-Barnett decided to report the horrors of Black reality, anti-Black violence through lynching, and the weakness of Black leadership in the 1890’s, . . . the reality is that Black Americans lack a non-partisan interpretation of the Black conditions . . .  At the very bottom of Black politics, there is a need to recognize that the manipulation of Black media—the Black press and radio—to further the political agendas and social legitimacy of specific parties, namely the democratic party’s claim that they represent the Black/Browning of America, does nothing to arrest the imperial agendas this presidency like all presidencies before it continue to engage in the world over. 

He further posits, that, "Rather than being at odds with the type of progressivism that perpetuates the poverty, the apparati of state sponsored violence, and social repression, the Black press has taken to excusing it—pointing out the extraordinary cases of violence that shock us most, but leaving the racist narrative written into the foundation of America’s democracy, militarism, imperialism, and capitalist lust untouched."
