We're delighted to have this distinguished visiting philosopher and author with us for a second year, 2012-2013.
CLAUDIA MILLS (PhD, Princeton, 1991) joined DePauw in 2011 as the Robert and Carolyn Distinguished Visiting Professor of Ethics. She also serves as an Associate Professor of Philosophy at DePauw during this year. Dr. Mills joined the faculty of the University of Colorado Philosophy Department in 1992. Before that, her checkered past included working in children’s book publishing at Scholastic in New York City, earning a master’s degree in library science (specializing in the study of children’s literature), and spending a decade as editor and director of publications at the Institute for Philosophy and Public Policy at the University of Maryland. There she wrote articles on topics ranging from nuclear deterrence, the regulation of air pollution, the preservation of endangered species, and the political uses of food, to racist and sexist humor, children’s television, privacy in the computer age, and her most popular essay, “Why Life Is Disappointing.”
