2022 Philosophy in Media Fellows

We are delighted to announce our inaugural 2022 Media Fellows. Fellows were selected from a pool of 264 people applicants this year through a selection committee consisting of academic philosophers and media industry professionals.

Funded in large part by a Public Engagement Grant from the Templeton Foundation, the MSF Philosophy in Media initiative aims to increase the presence of philosophy in print, audio, and video media by training philosophers to write and produce for the public, and by connecting philosophers to editors and commissioners in the media industry. Media Fellows will receive workshop training, connections to industry professionals, and a $1500 honorarium.
