Jay Ball

Faculty Member

Assistant professor and graduate coordinator, Jay Ball is in the news. Ball’s adaptation of Michel de Ghelderode's “Pantagleize” is a critical and commercial "hit" in Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh's Entertainment Central's critic, Mike Vargo wrote, "The 2014 version comes from the theater scholar Jay Ball, a professor at Central Washington University who has worked previously with Quantum. Interviewed by phone, Ball insisted he is “not a playwright,” just an adaptor. I beg to differ." See the entire article at http://entertainmentcentralpittsburgh.com/center-stage/quantums-pantagle...

Presented a paper at the philoSOPHIA conference

Person's Name: 
Cynthia Coe

Faculty Member

I presented a paper at the philoSOPHIA conference (a conference on Continental feminist theory) last week on how Levinas's understanding of ethics helps us to reconceive cultural associations between maternity and mortality. From that presentation, feedback on it, and attending other presentations, my head is buzzing with ideas for the manuscript I'll be working on next year, during my sabbatical.

Presented paper at annual meeting

Person's Name: 
Matthew Altman

Faculty Member

In March 2014, Dr. Altman presented a paper titled "Justifying Punishment -- Epistemic Considerations, Ethical Implications" at the Association for Practical and Professional Ethics annual meeting, which was held this year in Jacksonville, Florida. The paper is about how legislators are more bound by utilitarian considerations because of their ability to consider broader public policies, and how juries and judges are more bound by retributivist considerations because they can consider the degree of guilt of the accused.
