In spring 2022, I am teaching on section of Philosophy and Literature and one section of the Ethics and Justice course for the Honors Program, the latter focused on environmental ethics, broadly construed. My syllabi have been migrated to LMU’s Brightspace system. Enrolled students can log in through the appropriate university channels to access syllabi, course assignments, and more.
