New Editor-in-Chief for Philosophy Compass

Elizabeth BarnesWe’re delighted to announce the appointment of the new chief editor of Philosophy Compass, Elizabeth Barnes, who will be coming on as of today and continuing the great work begun by Brian Weatherson. Elizabeth is an Associate Professor in the department of philosophy at the University of Leeds. Her research interests are split between metaphysics and ethics. In metaphysics, she’s written on indeterminacy, emergence, truthmaking, and the open future. In ethics, her work has focused on disability and wellbeing.

The team would also like to extend their warm thanks and appreciation to Brian for the leadership and vision he has shown in the 6 years since launch. During his tenure, the journal has gone from being a largely unknown online novelty to now playing a unique and respected role in philosophical scholarship.

Welcome Elizabeth, and thanks Brian!

    Although I’m not involved in Philosophy Compass day-to-day, I had the honor of first approaching Brian about being its editor, and I’m so glad he agreed to take on the role. Philosophy Compass was something of an experiment, and I have been pleased to see it grow over the years, meeting (and in many ways exceeding) expectations. I am a bit late to this posting, but wanted to leave a public “thank you” to Brian, and a “welcome” to Elizabeth. Cheers to you both!
