Assistant Professor, Philosophy
Furman Hall 125F
- Current disciplinary research interests
19th and 20th European Philosophy, Philosophy of Religion, and Environmental Philosophy.
- Interest in connecting sustainability to research
I am especially interested in the moral, political, and religious dimensions of sustainability. I have written quite a bit on climate change ethics, Christianity and environmental activism, and phenomenology and environmental philosophy.
- Center-funded research projects
- Sustainability courses taught
I have taught courses that deal with sustainability in three main areas:
- Environmental Philosophy
- Environmental Activism and Religious Identity (relating to Eco-theology and the notion of Environmental Stewardship)
- Social Justice and Political Philosophy.
I would like to develop a course entitled something like "Postmodernism and the Environment" that would deal with the recent work occurring in Continental ethics and philosophy of religion that opens productive spaces for thinking about our relationships to non-human others. Readings would include Heidegger, Derrida, Zizek, Foucault, Keller, and Levinas.
