Academic Year 2019-2020
Stephen Daniel is a Professor of Philosophy and University Professor for Teaching Excellence, and has taught at Texas A&M University for thirty-six years. His research, which focuses on 17th and 18th century philosophy and contemporary continental thought, has resulted in four books, sixty-two articles, and three edited volumes. His publications include work on George Berkeley, G. W. Leibniz, John Toland, Giambattista Vico, Rene Descartes, Thomas Hobbes, and Jonathan Edwards. He is past president of the International Berkeley Society and is currently editor of Berkeley Studies. For his Glasscock project, he will complete a book on how Berkeley’s thought relates to other early modern philosophers (including Hobbes, Arnauld, Malebranche, Spinoza, and Bayle).
Tasha Dubriwny holds a joint appointment with Communication and Women’s and Gender Studies. Her research engages the intersection of feminism, politics, and health from a rhetorical perspective. Specifically, Dubriwny examines the articulation of identities for women in a broad range of contexts and demonstrates how these identities are informed by (and inform) changing rhetorical vocabularies and the rhetorical processes of social change. For her fellowship project, Dr. Dubriwny is tackling the question of how abortion rights advocates are rhetorically adapting to the legislative success of the anti-abortion movement by analyzing public moral arguments for abortion rights.

Manuela Marchesini is an Associate Professor in the Department of International Studies. Her research centers on questions of method, interpretation, and aesthetic value, particularly in the literature and culture of modern and contemporary Italy, which she studies in its intersections with broader historical and theoretical traditions.
Besides articles and edited collections, her publications include two books, one on the category of literary style as a “mode of knowledge” in literature and criticism, and the other an interpretive reassessment of Carlo Emilio Gadda’s work. At the Glasscock, she will complete a book called Merchants of Enchantment: The Existence of Italy, in which she examines how a set of modern and contemporary Italian works are marked by complementary drives to theorize what is historical and to historicize what is theoretical, in order to evade the dualism that informs the hatred of literature as well as hatred tout court.
