The Distinguished Philosophers-in-Residence series is one of the Philosophy Program's signature projects. Each year, we bring a different distinguished senior philosopher to NYU Abu Dhabi for a weeklong visit, during which the philosopher-in-residence meets with students, attends one or more classes, delivers a public lecture, and participates in a faculty seminar on issues related to his or her work.
In 2019–2020, the Philosophy Program was pleased to host Karen Bennett, Professor of Philosophy at Rutgers University, as its Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence. We are excited to announce that our next Distinguished Philosopher-in-Residence will be Quassim Cassam, Professor of Philosophy at the University of Warwick. Professor Cassam is scheduled to visit in November 2022.
