The Postdoctoral Research Scholar will serve as Associate Director of the Center for New Narratives in Philosophy (CNNP).

The overarching goal of the Center for New Narratives in Philosophy is to create a site for the most innovative work in the history of philosophy and promote diversity in philosophy as it is practiced and taught. Growing out of the success of the series, Oxford Philosophical Concepts (edited by Christia Mercer) and the new series, Oxford New Histories of Philosophy (co-edited by Christia Mercer and Melvin Rogers) and the increasing awareness that an accurate account of philosophy’s history has the potential to influence and diversify the discipline of philosophy, the CNNP organizes conferences for international scholars, workshops for graduate students and faculty, and encourages new scholarship. The CNNP is making Columbia the epicenter of the movement to rethink philosophy’s past and diversify philosophy.
