Justin MorrisMr. Morris received his B.A. (Hon.) in 2011, and is slated to complete his M.A. in Philosophy at the University of Windsor in Summer 2013. Under the supervision of Dr. Philip Rose, his major paper investigates the possibility of developing a nonanthropocentric dialogical interspecies ethic through an ecofeminist lens. As a Master’s student at Windsor, Mr. Morris’s research benefitted from the support of an Ontario Graduate Scholarship and two consecutive graduate student fellowships at CRRAR, where he most recently presented a paper entitled “A Gendered Analysis of Rhetorical Argumentation”. He will present at the upcoming tenth meeting of the Ontario Society for the Study of Argumentation (OSSA) (“Narrative, Intersectionality and Argumentative Discourse”) and has participated in a number of conferences in the past, including Concordia and McGill’s The Status of Minorities in Philosophy Graduate Conference and Workshop (“An Empathetically Engaged Approach to Argumentative Exchange”) and Waterloo’s Annual Graduate Conference in Philosophy (“Empathetic Engagement as an Epistemic Responsibility”). He will begin his PhD studies in Fall 2013 at McMaster University with the support of an OGS doctoral scholarship.
