Christopher M. Howard

Assistant Professor of Philosophy at McGill University

Positions held

2019-2020 to today Co-researcher(s),


I’m an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at McGill University. Before coming to McGill, I was a Research Assistant Professor in Philosophy at UNC-Chapel Hill and Core Faculty in the ​UNC/Duke Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics. Prior to that, I completed a PhD at the University of Arizona, an MA at Brandeis University, and a BA at ​Wheaton College (Norton, MA). In Spring 2017, I was a Visiting Fellow at ​Harvard; and in Summer 2019, I was an RSSS Visiting Fellow at the Australian National University.

I work mostly at the intersection of normative ethics and metaethics, but I also enjoy writing and talking about issues in political philosophy and moral psychology. I’m also increasingly interested in ethical issues related to technology, particularly those concerning virtual and mixed reality, as well as the structure and governance of digital spaces.

With Alex Worsnip, I organize the annual Chapel Hill Normativity Workshop.
