Associate Professor (University of Texas Rio Grande Valley)
Alex Stehn is Associate Professor of Philosophy, Associate Director of the Center for Bilingual Studies, and Faculty Affiliate in Mexican American Studies at the University of Texas Rio Grande Valley. He specializes in U.S.-American and Latin American philosophies with a focus on the intersections between Ethics and Philosophy of Religion, but he is prouder of being an unrepentant generalist and teacher at the alma mater of Gloria Anzaldúa. In 2014, he was honored with a University of Texas Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award. His publications related to teaching philosophy as a way of life include: “Teaching Gloria Anzaldúa as an American Philosopher” in Teaching Borderlands: Approaches to Teaching Gloria Anzaldúa (forthcoming) and “Teaching Ethics, Happiness, & The Good Life: An Upbuilding Discourse in the Spirits of Søren Kierkegaard and John Dewey” in Philosophers in the Classroom: Essays on Teaching (2018).
