I am Dr. Tracy Llanera and I am a Filipino scholar in philosophy. My research interests lie at the intersection of social and political philosophy, philosophy of religion, social epistemology and pragmatism. I am currently working on two interrelated projects: a project on conversion and a project on nihilism.
Research-wise, I was a Visiting Research Fellow at the School of Politics, Philosophy, International Relations and Environment at Keele University, United Kingdom (Spring 2018). I was also a Research Fellow at the University of Connecticut Humanities Institute (Humility & Conviction in Public Life), United States last Fall 2017. Teaching-wise, I am affiliated with Macquarie University, Australia and teach, or have taught, undergraduate and postgraduate courses in the Department of Philosophy, Department of Anthropology, and for Open Universities Australia. My Ph.D. in Philosophy was awarded by Macquarie University in April 2016.
I will join the University of Connecticut Philosophy Department as Assistant Research Professor in Fall 2018.
