The Department of Philosophy Welcomes a New Postdoctoral Fellow in Philosophy of Race: Dr. Adam Burgos!

Dr. Adam Burgos joins the faculty of the Department of Philosophy in August 2016 for a one-year fellowship through the The Consortium for Faculty Diversity at Liberal Arts Colleges.

As postdoctoral fellow at Bucknell, Dr. Burgos will share his teaching and research expertise in social and political philosophy, including philosophy of the Americas, and on issues surrounding resistance and political identity as they relate to democracy, equality and legitimacy. His book, Political Philosophy and Political Action: Imperatives of Resistance, will be released in December 2016 by Rowman & Littlefield International (available for preorder on the publisher's webpage and on Amazon).

Burgos comes to Bucknell from Vanderbilt University where he earned his PhD in philosophy. Originally from Philadelphia, Dr. Burgos is happy to return to teach in his home state.  In addition to being a philosopher, Burgos plays squash, loves film, and speaks Spanish with an Argentine accent.
