The Philosophy Department is pleased to announce that Prof. Bryce Huebner has been named a Provost’s Distinguished Associate Professor. The honor has a five-year term (unless Prof.
Huebner is promoted to full professor first).
This honor recognizes Prof. Huebner’s contributions to the discipline of philosophy, to Georgetown University, and to the formation of his students.
Prof. Huebner has an extraordinary publication record for someone so early in his career. He published his monograph, Macrocognition, with Oxford Univ. Press in 2013. He has recently edited a volume (also with Oxford) on The Philosophy of Daniel Dennett. He has co-edited a special issue of Philosophical Psychology. He has published 33 regular articles, 7 shorter articles, and 9 book reviews. Just in sheer volume, this is an extraordinary output for a philosopher. Prof. Huebner is also a much sought-after speaker. He has delivered 18 refereed research presentations and another 36 invited presentations. What’s more, Prof. Huebner’s presentations have crossed the globe: not just the USA, but Canada, Mexico, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Latvia, Italy, Greece, and Lebanon.
Prof. Huebner has published at this torrid rate while carrying a significant service burden, to the Philosophy Dept., the University, and the profession. He has served as Director of Graduate Studies and as chair of a search committee in the Philosophy Dept. He has served on the University’s internal grants evaluation committee. He has evaluated grant proposals for the NSF and performed tenure reviews for other departments. Prof. Huebner is also heavily involved in mentoring graduate students. He serves as mentor for four students' theses and as a reader on several other committees. The means that he is involved, in one form or another, in about one-third of the doctoral committees in the Department.
Congratulations to Prof. Huebner on this well-deserved honor.
