Visiting scholars receive shared office space, library privileges, and invitations to all the Department’s classes, lectures, and social events. However, no stipend or money of any kind is provided.
Visiting scholars are typically faculty members on leave or advanced graduate students who wish to pursue their research in the Department. Visiting scholars should have a PhD in Philosophy or a related field, or, if they are graduate students, should have completed their course work.
Unfortunately, the Department does not have the space to accommodate all those who wish to be visiting scholars. Therefore, there is a simple application process. Individuals wishing to be a visiting scholar should send a CV, a writing sample, and a letter of application to the Chair of the Department of Philosophy. The letter should precisely indicate the period that the scholar proposes to be in the Department. The faculty of the Department will review this material and decide whether or not to extend an invitation. Applications will be considered as they arrive. Therefore, there is an advantage to applying early.
