I just started an accelerated summer Logic course at Stetson this morning – just four weeks, and a great introduction to general logic! It’s a small group, and so a cozy atmosphere to learn in, and I’m looking forward to giving them some challenging problems. Today’s Wason Selection Task was a good start.
I just wrote a new blog post for Discrimination and Disadvantage! Check it out.
Check out the fantastic third anniversary installment of Shelley Tremain’s Dialogues on Disability series, published in dialogue with Devonya Havis and Audrey Yap! It’s been an incredible and rich three years – celebrate Shelley’s work and the building of community by reading and commenting.
I am excited to join a group of very interesting academics next week to talk all about enhancement, at the Ethics of Enhancement Workshop hosted by Rutgers University, Camden! Thank you so much to Dr. Eric Chwang for the invitation, and for arranging and funding this event. I look very forward to it.
I had a blast presenting my recent research on the individualization of risk for the Philosophy and Medicine conference at Florida Gulf Coast University last weekend. I also was thrilled by the quality of student papers at the conference! It was fun and fulfilling to get to know new people in the region who are working on topics that matter to me from similar philosophical perspectives. Thanks to Kevin Aho for alerting me to the conference and inviting me to send a submission!
So excited to be part of the philoSOPHIA 2018 panel for Shelley Lynn Tremain’s fabulous book, Foucault and Feminist Philosophy of Disability! I get the honor of introducing the book and kicking off the panel. While I am very disappointed I cannot be there in person, I’ll call in tomorrow and join the wonderful Shelley, Devonya Havis (Canisius College) and Lauren Guilmette (Florida Atlantic University) in a discussion of Shelley’s groundbreaking work.
To the Stetson University and DeLand community:
On February 16th, the Community Education Project (CEP) is hosting Open House for anyone interested in learning more about higher education in prison and potentially getting involved as a lecturer or volunteer.
CEP was established by Stetson professors in 2015 at Tomoka Correctional Institution located in Daytona, Florida with a mission to provide incarcerated people with high quality education. Since then we have been developing CEP with our incarcerated students with much success. Thanks to the support of all our lecturers and volunteers we were able to offer numerous college level courses, guest lectures, workshops and reading groups to incarcerated students. In addition, CEP students have also presented their intellectual work at the regional and national conferences.
During the Open House you will be able to learn about the opportunities to participate in the program and our future initiatives, meet the CEP students through their creative work, and much more.
