Walton Presents at Tennessee Philosophical Association and Women in Philosophy Conferences

Mélanie Walton, associate professor of philosophy, recently presented at two conferences: a commentary on Belmont’s Honors Adjunct Aaron Stauffer’s philosophy of religion essay at the Tennessee Philosophical Association’s Annual Conference October 2 and a paper entitled “Explorer/ing: Using Lugones’ ‘Pluralist’ as a Map” for the Society for Women in Philosophy’s Annual Conference. Both were hosted by Vanderbilt.

The latter read the current work of Argentinian feminist philosopher María Lugones to propose interpreting an author’s methodology as her presentation of self and using this model as a way of navigating the ‘problem of difference’ in philosophical writing.
