Jonardon Ganeri, currently Professor of Philosophy and Humanities at NYU Abu Dhabi, will become the Bimal Matilal Distinguished Professor of Philosophy at Toronto, effective July 2020.

  1. This is fantastic news. Blog readers may also be interested to know that the Philosophy Department at the University of British Columbia also made a hire this year in Indian philosophy: Catherine Prueitt joins our department on July 1.

  2. Many thanks to Matthew for the post and to all of you! I look forward for more chances to interact with the ones among the authors and readers of the blog who live in North America.
