In 2015-16, the Center for Values and Social policy introduced the CVSP Visiting Fellows program. Designed for faculty who are on paid sabbatical or who are recently retired, the Visiting Fellows program brings scholars to campus for visits of roughly two to four weeks during which they conduct research, give talks, do guest presentations in undergraduate and graduate classes, and interact in a variety of other ways with faculty and students at CU. Visiting Fellows during 2015-16 were Justin Weinberg (University of South Carolina) in the fall and Teresa Burke (Gallaudet University) in the spring. In 2016-17, the Center hosted Bonnie Steinbock (SUNY Albany, Emerita) in the fall and three visitors in the spring: Thierry Ngosso (St. Gallen, Switzerland), Tom Dougherty (Cambridge), and Helen Frowe (Stockholm).
The CVSP Visiting Fellows for 2018-2019 are as follows:
1. Nathan Hanna was recently promoted to Associate Professor at Drexel University. His CV is here. During his sabbatical, he will be working on a book with the working title Against Punishment: An Argument for Abolition.
2. Cara Nine was recently promoted to Senior Lecturer (on a par with Associate Professor) at University College Cork (Ireland). You can find basic information about her here. During her sabbatical, she will be working on a book manuscript, currently titled, A Philosophy of Territorial Borders, which is a follow up to her 2012 book, Global Justice and Territory (Oxford) which won the 2013 APA Book Prize.
3. Alex Worsnip is an Assistant Professor at UNC Chapel Hill. You can find information about him here. During his research leave, he will be working on a project at the intersection of epistemology and political philosophy that asks whether epistemic norms of deference are in tension with democratic ideals of citizenship.
