We’re delighted to announce that Nate Charlow has been promoted to the rank of associate professor with tenure, effective July 1, 2018.
Professor Charlow is not only an acclaimed scholar (his dissertation was one of the top 16 of 750 PhD dissertations at the University of Michigan in 2011); he is also a dedicated instructor to both his graduate and undergraduate students. His recently-taught graduate courses include “Communication” (with Imogen Dickie) in fall 2017 and “How To Think About Linguistic Meaning” in fall 2015. His recently-taught undergraduate courses include the fourth-year seminar “Problematic Language” in spring 2018, and the second-year course “Probability and Inductive Logic” in spring 2017 and fall 2017.
Professor Charlow’s administrative work at the Department of Philosophy has included serving on the Graduate Admissions Committee (2016–2018) and the PhD Placement Committee (2011–2016).
Professor Charlow’s research interests lie in the semantics of natural language and related issues in meta-ethics and epistemology. His current research project, “Communicating About What to Do”, is supported by a 2015 Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council Insight Grant.
The department warmly congratulates Professor Charlow on his well-deserved promotion!
