Ideas:
“  "On Anger, Silence, and Epistemic Injustice," Anger is the emotion of injustice. Historically, discussions of anger and injustice have focused on the political uses of anger; but, as Kristie Dotson remarks “All injustices are epistemic at root.” So, I’m curious: if anger is the emotion of injustice, and if all injustices are epistemic at root, then where is the anger in epistemic injustice? Despite the question, my project is not to account for the lack of attention to anger in the epistemic injustice scholarship. Instead, I want to focus on the anger that saturates the complex silences that epistemic injustices repeatedly manufacture. I begin with an account of how the social practices of silencing produce angry experiences during unjust epistemic exchanges. I use ‘tone policing’ and ‘tone vigilance’ to illustrate the intimate relationship between silencing and anger management, and suggest that in managing anger we also manage the knowledge present in resistant anger.  ”
