HELP START A GLOBAL CONVERSATION IN APPLIED ETHICS

We seek a comparative ethicist conversant with Levinas, Heidegger, Eastern thought and, preferably, familiarity with the work of Silvia Benso in The Face of Things. This collaboration will publish a short online program in ethical studies this spring.

  • Lead three 30-min. student interactions online.
  • Answer written questions from students once a week for two months. Refer students to appropriate bibliographies and online resources.
  • Work closely with Program Chair/Lead Scholar (as appropriate).
  • Abide by the appropriate policies and procedures contained in the Council’s Employee Handbook.
