Associate Professor Jennifer Nagel (UTM) and Professor Joseph Heath (St. George) have each been awarded a Jackman Humanities Institute Faculty Research Fellowship for 2018-19.

Each year, these fellowships are awarded under a research theme; the theme for this year is “Reading Faces – Reading Minds”, and focuses on what it means to read a face, a text, an object, or another mind as people encounter each other in the world in various ways.

Prof. Nagel’s work is in epistemology and her project is titled Extracting Belief from Knowledge, while Prof. Heath researches social and political philosophy, and will undertake a project entitled The Arc of History.

See the full list of recipients and a detailed description of this year’s theme on the Jackman Humanities Institute website.

Congratulations Professors Heath and Nagel!
