Russ Shafer-Landau, currently professor of philosophy and chair of the philosophy department at the University of Wisconsin, has accepted an offer from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Starting this summer, he will be professor of philosophy there and director of UNC’s Parr Center for Ethics. Shafer-Landau is known for his work in metaethics.
UPDATE: Some have asked about about the fate of the Wisconsin Metaethics Workshop, or Mad Meta, as it is known. According to Shafer-Landau, the workshop will certainly be taking place in Chapel Hill starting in 2016. A decision about the location of the 2015 meeting should be made by the end of the month.
