Ethan Nowak is Associate Professor (Senior Lecturer) in Philosophy, and is one of the department’s equal opportunities representatives. Some of his work involves detailed questions about how language works at the level of the compositional semantics. Some of it is connected with broader themes from ethics, social philosophy, and politics, involving questions about how we use language in constructing our identities and shaping our communities.
