Associate Professor of Philosophy Russell Marcus was recently elected vice president of the American Association of Philosophy Teachers. His two-year term begins Jan. 1. Following his term as vice president, he will be president for two years, and then past-president for the next two.
Marcus has been involved with the AAPT for more than 10 years in a range of positions. He currently serves on the board as a member-at-large, chairs the AAPT APA Sessions Committee, and is a member of the Program Committee.
This summer, when the AAPT biennial conference was canceled due to the pandemic, Marcus helped organize AAPT 2020: Anti-Racist and Pandemic Pedagogy, a virtual conference that replaced it.
Marcus describes the AAPT as “the premier organization in the United States dedicated to the teaching of philosophy. We run conferences and workshops around the country, publish a journal, award teaching prizes, and provide grants for teaching development.”
He said he is “thrilled to have been chosen to lead this important organization.”
