The Department of Philosophy offers an active research environment. Listed below are a few of the department’s recent achievements.

Awards

Jay Drydyk was awarded a SSHRC Connections Grant to host the 33rd annual North American Society for Social Philosophy (NASSP) conference.   This year’s theme of Power and Public Reason aims to create an occasion for critical examination of the relevance of the concept and practice of public reason to public issues in North America and beyond.  It is particularly significant that this conference will be hosted by Carleton, which has just introduced a new interdisciplinary graduate program in Ethics and Public Affairs, in which public reason is a focal point.  The conference takes place July 21 – 23; further details are available on the NASSP website.

Myrto Mylopoulos has been awarded a two-year Insight Development Grant by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council. The award is for her research project, “Consciousness, Intentional Control, and Automaticity.”

Myrto Mylopoulos:  With co-investigator Elisabeth Pacherie (Insitut Jean Nicod, Paris), Myrto Mylopoulos was recently awarded a Templeton Foundation grant for the research project, “Executive and motivational self-control:  How they interface and interact.”  The grant flows from the larger Templeton Foundation grant awarded to Alfred Mele (Florida State University), “The philosophy and science of self-control”  (https://philosophyandscienceofself-control.com/).

Vida Panitch has won a Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Development grant  (http://www.sshrc-crsh.gc.ca/funding-financement/programs-programmes/insight_development_grants-subventions_de_developpement_savoir-eng.aspx.) The grant will fund her two-year research project “Commodification, justice, and equality.”
