Welcome Prof. Joel MacClellan to our department as Visiting Assistant Professor for the 2013-14 academic year.
Joel earned his PhD in philosophy in 2012 from the University of Tennessee. He specializes in environmental ethics, and is particularly interested in the intersection between environmental ethics and animal ethics; Joel also has research interests in biomedical ethics, the philosophy of biology, and social and political philosophy.
During his year as a visitor at Binghamton Joel will be teaching a range of applied ethics courses including upper-division and graduate courses. I think he will make a great addition to SPEL's concentrations in applied ethics and will be an engaging conversation partner for faculty and grad students.
