Faculty Baccalaureate Speakers

Lee Bowie
Lee Bowie is a professor of philosophy and the incoming dean of the College. His philosophical work is centered in philosophy of mind, especially philosophy of cognitive science, and in logic. He grapples with how to bring work in neuroscience, computer theory, cognitive psychology, and linguistics all to bear in forging a unified view of what the mind is and how it works. His work in logic has sought to examine how issues in modal logic, recursion theory, and metamathematics bear on foundational
issues of mind and metaphysics. He is also the coauthor of introductory anthologies in philosophy and in ethics. As a teacher he has long been interested in how to teach critical thought and in the academic advising process. He was the founding director of the Speaking, Arguing, and Writing Program (SAW) and a founding codirector of the Weissman Center for Leadership. He received his A.B. degree in mathematics from Yale and his Ph.D. in philosophy from Stanford.

Amy Martin

Amy Martin is an assistant professor of English and a faculty member in the Critical Social Thought Program. She teaches courses in Victorian literature, Irish literature, postcolonial studies, and gender studies. After attending Sarah Lawrence College as an undergraduate, she completed her Ph.D. at Columbia University and is currently at work on a book titled Alter-nations: Representing Nationalisms, the State, and National Identities in Nineteenth-Century Britain and Ireland. Her project examines the complex relationship between British imperial nationalism and Irish anticolonial nationalism and investigates the ways that national identity is imagined in a variety of cultural texts in the Victorian period.
