Russ Shafer-Landau, currently professor of philosophy at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and director of its Parr Center for Ethics, will be returning in Fall 2017 to the Department of Philosophy at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, where he had been professor for 13 years.
Shafer-Landau will have been at UNC for just two years. When asked about the move, he reported that he has found the UNC department all that it is reputed to be: “a warm, collegial department filled with wonderful, smart people.” He is returning to Madison for family reasons.
Since 2004, Shafer-Landau has organized an annual metaethics workshop, informally known as MadMeta. It had become CHillMeta for its time in Chapel Hill. It will be resuscitated as MadMeta, back in Madison, in September, 2017.
