Dissertations

All twelve of the students whose dissertations I have completed directing (listed below) are teaching at universities or colleges. Six of them are tenured in philosophy departments at universities and colleges; four of these are also the chairs of their departments. Of the other six, one has recently received a tenure-track line (2016). Another has been a full time lecturer for many years at his university. Two others just received their PhDs (2014) and hold the position of Visiting Assistant Professor at their respective universities. Another is an adjunct professor and animal and human rights activist. The final member of this group is an African priest who is a principle of a high school and also a university lecturer in Nigeria. Besides playing important roles in their universities, all of these former students are incredibly interesting people and it has been my great pleasure to have directed their dissertations, played a role in their careers, and to have learned from them. I have also been fortunate to serve as an outside reader for six dissertations in the University of Pittsburgh's Latin American Studies PhD program. These students, all now professors in Latin America or in the U.S., became friends as well as my teachers about their cultures, countries, and intellectual projects.
