After several guest posts, Dr. Saunders and some other Ordinary Gentlemen have decided to make an honest woman out of me and make me a co-blogger on Blinded Trials. I’m honored!
A bit about me and my interests. If anyone is interested in a particular topic, please let me know in the comments and I’m happy to start with that! I am ABD in philosophy (the dissertation is 60% done, unless you are my advisor – then it is 80% done). I am in a polyamorous relationship with aesthetics and philosophy of mind, but I occasionally stray. I am also very interested in ethics – both ethical theory and applied ethics. Bioethics might be especially well-suited here. I’ve been teaching undergrads for seven years at a giant state U, where the student body is perhaps more intrigued by basketball than Hume. So I’ve got some thoughts on higher education, as well.
I am also a suburban mom with a husband, three very young kids, and a minivan. So parenting takes up a large portion of my brain. One of my kids has a ridiculously rare form of a ridiculously rare genetic disorder and is severely disabled – he has serious mental retardation as well as psychomotor issues. This has given me handicapped parking pass (score!) and a lot of opinions on disability issues. He is also a sweet pie. My momhood is, perhaps, a bit of an explanation of why I’ve been teaching for seven years and have not finished my dissertation (for those who might have wondered).
I love TV, books, movies, cooking, and food. Mmmm, food.
Look forward to writing for you and hearing from you!
