Postdoctoral and Teaching Fellows

ERC Postdoctoral Fellow
After receiving a BA in Classics (2010), Evan completed his MA in Classics at Dalhousie University, Halifax, in 2012, writing a thesis on the metaphysics of the transcendentals in Meister Eckhart. In 2017, he graduated with a PhD in Divinity at Clare College, Cambridge (UK), with a dissertation on the sources, motivations, and coherence of the Exposition on the Elements of Theology of Proclus by Berthold of Moosburg. From 2016-2017, he was an Affiliated Lecturer in Divinity at Cambridge and from 2017-2019 he has taught as Faculty Fellow in the Humanities at the University of King's College and in Classics and Religious Studies at Dalhousie. Within the ERC-funded NeoplAT project, he will focus on the sources and reception of Berthold of Moosburg's Exposition.

Dr. Mark Bowker

IRC Postdoctoral Fellow

Mark Bowker is a Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellow. He graduated with a PhD from the University of St Andrews with a dissertations entitled ‘Saying Nothing’, which considered the possibility that our utterances fail to determine truth-conditions and argued that communication would be possible even if this possibility were actualised. His current IRC-funded project suggests that this possibility is actualised in the case of generics; generalisations without explicit quantification. Utterances of generics lack the syntactic complexity to determine truth-conditions semantically and usually lack the context to determine truth-conditions pragmatically. As such, generics are neither true nor false and cannot be disproved by appeal to counterexamples. We will therefore have to develop new techniques to combat hate speech expressed through generics.
