Interest in public philosophy? Please be as SPECIFIC AS YOU CAN. Members who answer "yes" or "a lot" will not be approved.
My scholarship focuses on intersections of epistemology, philosophy of language, and social and political philosophy. As a graduate student, I was active in Honolulu as a board member and officer of Pride at Work Hawai`i (P@W-HI), a constituent organization of the state AFL-CIO that promotes LGBT concerns within the labor movement and workers' concerns within the LGBT community. I also served as a member of a coalition of labor and community leaders in Honolulu, where, among other things, we worked to hash out what "good jobs" and a "healthy community" would look like in Hawai`i. My work with P@W-HI and the (People's) Alliance for Quality of Life greatly impacted my vision of philosophy and me as a philosopher. After earning my doctorate in 2011, I returned home to Scranton, PA where I now teach part-time with the department of philosophy.
