Dr. Alexandra King was presented the Outstanding Faculty by Angela Menditto, President, UB Graduate Philosophy Association (GPA). King's research examines the relationship between different kinds of normativity, especially when it comes to sorting out the parallels and differences between practical, moral, and aesthetic normativity. Other annual awards for AY 2017-18, presented by Dr. David Braun, Professor and Director of Graduate Studies, were given in recognition of outstanding work by three graduate students: Clint Dowland was given the Thomas D. Perry Award for Best Dissertation Defense; Ariane Nomikos received the Peter Hare Award for Best Overall Paper for her essay, “Place Matters.”; and, David Limbaugh was presented the Patrick and Edna Romanell Award for Philosophical Work in Naturalism for his essay, "The Flexibility of Reality: An Essay on Modality, Representation, and Powers."
The awards were held in conjunction with our end-of-semester Holiday Party, December 7, at Cole's, a classic Buffalo gathering place in Elmwood Village. A large number of faculty, staff, and students attended the event.
