Dylon McChesney, PhD student in philosophy, is one of only four recipients of the Amit & Meena Chakma Distinguished Teaching by a Student Award this year. The award recognizes excellence in teaching with consideration for intellectual vigor and communication skills in the interpretation and presentation of subject matter while demonstrating concern for and sensitivity to the academic need of the students.
We chat with Professor Gerry Callaghan to find out more about his role as the philosophy department’s Extended Learning Coordinator, and how the recent switch to fully remote and online learning at Waterloo has impacted his role.
The Steering Committee of the Eastern Division of The Society for Women in Philosophy has announced that past Humphrey Chair of Feminist Philosophy at Waterloo, Professor Ann Garry, will be receiving the Distinguished Woman Philosopher Award this year.
Usually we would gather at the end of Winter term for our Department Awards Ceremony. The ceremony had to be cancelled this year, but we still have deserving prize winners to celebrate! The Philosophy Awards Committee received many strong nominations for these prizes and had difficult decisions to make.
