Check out this forum, edited by Shelley Tremain, in which philosophers reflect on the Women’s March of January 21, 2017.
I participated along with several others, including Megan Dean, Tempest Henning, Catherine Hundleby, Tracy Isaacs, Jason Burke Murphy, and Kevin Timpe.

A belated announcement of a very exciting achievement for Stetson University Honors students. Last semester, as co-directors of the Honors program, Michael Denner and I created an agreement with Stetson Law School that allows direct admission for Honors students.
Check out the details in this Stetson Today report.
In combination with our admissions agreement with Daytona State College Quanta Honors Program, we are creating a pipeline from AA to JD for community college students! This is a social justice and access issue that I am very proud to be working on directly in concrete ways that ease the financial burden of education for those who need it most.
I’m very glad to announce that there will be two panels this year on my recently-released book, The Bioethics of Enhancement (Lexington Books, 2016). Thanks to Shelley Tremain for organizing the panels, and to my colleagues for their willingness to respond to my work! I’m grateful for this opportunity to share my ideas.
The first book panel is hosted by PhiloSOPHIA in Boca Raton, FL and the second book panel is hosted by the Canadian Philosophical Association in Toronto, ON.
