Hull Receives Fellowship

Thursday, August 1st, 2013

Dr. Robert Hull, Professor of Philosophy at West Virginia Wesleyan College, has been awarded a 2013-2014 West Virginia Humanities Council Fellowship. Professor Hull is one of eight scholars from Colleges and Universities in West Virginia awarded the Fellowship this year, which supports original creative work in such fields as history, philosophy, English, political science, and religion.

Dr. Hull’s project, “Revolutionary Art: Jefferson, Painting, and Democratic Aesthetics,” explores the intersection of Jefferson’s political philosophy, his revolutionary pragmatics, and the place that painting and drawing occupied in his life as a collector, scholar, and an advocate of art and of the ideals of democracy. Professor Hull’s publications cover issues in Nietzsche scholarship, normative theory, and political philosophy.

He is a 2007 recipient of the General Board of Higher Education of the United Methodist Church Award for Exemplary Teaching. This is Dr. Hull’s third WCHC fellowship.
