Charlie Barley, my beloved

 

News: I have been interviewed / cited (as a philosopher working on nihilism) in a New York Times feature about the treat culture and the global pandemic!

Interview with Tracy Llanera, I am an American Philosopher Series – Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy, Mar 2022.

My articles “The Misogyny Paradox and the Alt-Right” and “Pragmatism, Language Games, and the Philippine Drug War” have been accepted for publication! The former will appear in Hypatia and the latter in Philosophy and Global Affairs.

My essay “Beautiful feminists? Or plain hypocrites? On Simone de Beauvoir and Manon Garcia” is now out in Beyond the Ghetto: Women Doing Philosophy. Sep 2021.

Nick Smith and I co-wrote an essay in Open for Debate (Cardiff) on the culture of egotism in universities, inspired by the work of Rorty and Dewey.

0I’m leading a project titled The Brown Babe’s Burden and the Global Pandemic with members of Women Doing Philosophy. Our aim is to produce the first edited collection of writings by Filipina philosophers, for inclusion in the Routledge Book Series on the Post-COVID World: Academics, Politics and Society in early 2023. I’ll serve as the editor of this book.
