Elizabeth Scarbrough (PhD 2015)

Elizabeth Scarbrough (PhD 2015) has recently joined the faculty at Florida International University as a permanent lecturer. Previously she taught at Portland State University, and while she is sad to leave the Pacific Northwest, she is enjoying the sunshine state.

In her final years as a graduate student at the University of Washington, Elizabeth held the Soden-Trueblood Publishing Fellowship at the University of Washington Press, and worked as the director of the Department of Philosophy's Writing Center.

At Florida International University, Elizabeth teaches courses in ethics and aesthetics. She is excited to teach "Philosophy of Film" in the spring, and hope to build connections to the thriving film community in southern Florida.
