Title: Philosophy Department Seminar: Luara Ferracioli & Sam Shpall
The next philosophy department seminar will take place on 18 November at  
3:30pm on Zoom. Please find more details about the talk and the Zoom link  
below.--------------Scepticism about Cultural AppropriationLuara Ferracioli  
& Sam Shpall (University of Sydney)Abstract: The charge of  
cultural appropriation is frequent in contemporary culture, and its effects  
are consequential. Upon reflection, however, the charge is difficult to  
understand. In this talk, we argue against two of the main views in the  
(small) philosophical literature on cultural appropriation, paying special  
attention to overlooked assumptions about the nature of cultural goods,  
group agency, and the right of free association. After showing that neither  
view vindicates the idea that cultural appropriation is a distinctive moral  
wrong, we argue that this is no surprise, because paradigm instances of the  
cultural appropriation charge concern heterogeneous moral wrongs such as  
exploitation, silencing, misrepresentation, and stereotyping. This  
diversity, we suggest, undermines the utility of "cultural appropriation"  
as a conceptual tool in social critique. We conclude by exploring a  
specific test case for our arguments, which we take from the world of  
literary fiction. When is "story appropriation" wrong? We show how the best  
answer to this question is friendly to our sceptical position.
