Joshua Glasgow Wins the 
2017 Baumgardt Memorial Fellowship

NEWARK, Del. — Apr. 24 2017 — The American Philosophical Association is pleased to announce that Professor Joshua Glasgow (Sonoma State University) has been selected by the APA committee on international cooperation as the winner of the 2017 Baumgardt Memorial Fellowship.

The David Baumgardt Memorial Fellowship, in the amount of $10,000, is for the support and dissemination of research in the field of ethics. Competition for this fellowship is open to candidates of any nationality, working in any country, whose research has some bearing on the philosophical interests of the late David Baumgardt. The Baumgardt Fellow will have the opportunity to present their work as a series of two or three public lectures, to be known as the Baumgardt Memorial Lectures.

Glasgow came to Sonoma State University in 2009. Prior to that, he taught at Victoria University of Wellington (New Zealand), University of California at Berkeley, Occidental College, and CSUBakersfield. Glasgow primarily works in ethics, political philosophy, philosophy of race, and philosophy of law. He has published numerous articles, and his book, A Theory of Race, was published in 2009 by Routledge.

Peter Graham, chair of the APA committee on international cooperation, says, “Professor Glasgow’s research draws from a wide range of intellectual influences, both inside and outside of the canonical figures of the Western philosophical tradition, and is sure to deepen our understanding of gratitude in our lives and the role that death places in the overall shape and value of human life.”
