SLU professor receives London fellowship

HAMMOND – Southeastern Louisiana University Professor of Philosophy Jeffrey Bell is temporarily living abroad thanks to a prestigious Leverhulme Fellowship. This semester Bell, a resident of Covington, is working as a Leverhulme Trust Visiting Professor at the School of Politics, International Relations, and Philosophy at Royal Holloway College in the University of London.

The Leverhulme Trust awards such grants to institutions in Britain that wish to invite an eminent researcher from overseas for an extended stay to enhance the knowledge and skills of their academic staff or student body, said History and Political Science Department Head William Robison. Bell will be advising the philosophy unit at Royal Holloway about how they might develop a specialization in philosophy that bridges the differences between analytic and continental philosophy.

“Professor Jeffrey Bell is a very worthy recipient of the extremely prestigious Leverhulme grant,” Robison said. “He has an extensive record of top-quality scholarship that would be stunning if he were at an Ivy League university with a fraction of the teaching load he has at Southeastern.”

A member of the Southeastern faculty since 1993, Bell earned master’s and doctoral degrees from Tulane University and was the recipient of the 2010 President’s Award for Excellence in Research. He is the author of “Deleuze’s Hume: Philosophy, Culture and the Scottish Enlightenment,” “The Problem of Difference: Phenomenology and Poststructuralism,” and “Philosophy at the Edge of Chaos: Gilles Deleuze and the Philosophy of Difference.”

“Jeffrey Bell has an international reputation, especially for his work on the philosopher Gilles Deleuze, and has been an invited speaker at conferences in America, Asia, and Europe. His books are well-reviewed, and he enjoys the esteem of the best scholars in his field,” Robison said. “Moreover, he is one of the best teachers in a department full of good teachers and is the only member of the Department of History and Political Science to teach undergraduate and graduate courses in history, philosophy, and political science. It is no exaggeration to describe him as a superstar. He has made the department and the university proud.”

As part of his fellowship responsibilities, Bell will give three public lectures related to his research, as well as a series of six research seminars. He also has speaking engagements scheduled at Dundee University, Manchester University, University of Warwick, and Nottingham University.
