Jonathan Trejo-Mathys, an assistant professor of philosophy at Boston College, has died. Trejo-Mathys worked mainly in political philosophy and critical social theory. Prior to his appointment at Boston College, he had been a Fulbright Scholar as well as a fellow at the Justitia Amplificata Centre for Advanced Studies in Frankfurt. He received his PhD in 2009 from Northwestern University. In addition to working on his own research, which resulted in an admirably diverse range of articles and a forthcoming co-edited collection, Domination and Global Political Justice: Conceptual, Historical, and Institutional Perspectives, Trejo-Mathys also translated others’ works. His death at such an early point in his career is a sad moment for the profession.
