Camisha Russell, assistant professor in the Department of Philosophy and a co-editor of Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, has been named as the winner of the 2020-2021 Baruch A. Brody Award & Lecture in Bioethics by the Baylor College of Medicine Center for Medical Ethics and Health Policy, Houston Methodist, and the Rice University Department of Philosophy.
Selected by a cross-disciplinary committee from across our three institutions, Russell won for her significant contributions to the field in research and scholarship on the topics of bioethics, critical philosophy of race and feminist philosophy. According to the press release, her work has been highly influential in ethics, law, and race theory over the past few years, and her focus on the concept of race as a technology embodies Baruch’s commitment to racial equality and social justice and helps inspire positive change.
The virtual award presentation and lecture will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 2, 2021. She will also have the opportunity to publish her lecture as a featured article for American Journal of Bioethics. Congratulations!
