A. Todd Franklin, associate professor of philosophy, presented an invited paper at this year's meeting of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy held March 11-13 in Charlotte, N.C. The paper, titled "Distinctive Voices, Distinctive Visions and the Development of Critical Consciousness" focused on the ways in which different expressions of voice operate interpersonally and impact the consciousness of subjects.

In keeping with the session’s theme of "American Philosophy and its Attentiveness to Human and Social Particularity," Franklin's paper detailed the way in which some expressions of voice contribute to the vicious cycle of social dislocations plaguing many urban black youth while others effectively counteract it.
