Friend and Philips-Brown to Edinburgh

Stacie Friend, currently reader in philosophy at Birkbeck, University of London, and Milo Philips-Brown, currently associate professor of philosophy at the University of Oxford, will be moving to Edinburgh University.

Stacie Friend works in aesthetics, philosophy of fiction, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind. You can learn more about her work here and here. At Edinburgh she will be reader in philosophy.

Milo Philips-Brown works in philosophy of mind, philosophy of language, philosophy of technology, and applied ethics. You can learn more about his work here and here. At Edinburgh he will be lecturer in philosophy.

Edinburgh also made two additional lecturer hires (at the junior level): Marion Boulicault (feminist philosophy, philosophy of science, philosophy of technology), a postdoctoral fellow at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Eli I. Lichtenstein (aesthetics, philosophy of science, environmental philosophy, history of late modern), currently a teaching fellow in philosophy at Edinburgh.

All four will take up their new positions at Edinburgh in the next academic year.

Edinburgh actually hired me—Eli I. Lichtenstein—not the other Eli Lichtenstein you linked to (sorry, I know it’s confusing)

You’re the latest addition to the set of philosopher name-twins, alongside the Andrew Cohens (both GSU), Peter Grahams (UCR/UMass Amherst), and Simon Mays (Birkbeck and KCL/FSU). I’m sure there are quite a few others. We should form a club.

And two Olufemi Taiwos too of course! Probably many others I should remember.

A friendly suggestion for daily nous: I think it’s a biased practice to post people about specific hires. So many people get hired why you just post about a few? Either post information about all the hires or leave that information to philappointments website.
