New Faculty Joining the Department!

The Department of Philosophy is delighted to announce two new additions to our faculty, both of whom will be joining the department this coming FA19.

Dr. Christa Johnson specializes in normative ethics and moral psychology, having earned her PhD from The Ohio State University in 2018 under the supervision of Justin D’Arms and Piers Turner. Christa also has interests in social and political philosophy as well as applied ethics. Her paper ‘The intrapersonal paradox of deontology’ is forthcoming in the Journal of Moral Philosophy.

Dr. Nick Laskowski specializes in metaethics, having earned his PhD from the University of Southern California in 2017 under the supervision of Mark Schroeder. Nick also has interests in social philosophy, and adds to the department’s strengths in philosophy of mind. His papers ‘Resisting Reductive Realism’ and ‘Moral Constraints on Gender Concepts’ are forthcoming in Oxford Studies in Metaethics and Ethical Theory and Moral Practice, respectively.

Welcome, both!
