New PhD Students


  • M.C. Cunningham: I’m originally from Seaside, FL and I just finished my Bachelors degree in Philosophy at Belmont University in Nashville, TN. My research interests include (but certainly are not limited to) ancient philosophy from the presocratics to Aristotle (especially Plato’s dialogues Phaedo, Parmenides, Phaedrus, and Symposium), Hegel (especially his Phenomenology of Spirit), and Nietzsche. When I’m not doing philosophy, I enjoy cooking and writing music.
  • Christopher Grimsley: I grew up in Baltimore, MD and completed my B.S. at Frostburg State University in Western Maryland. I graduated in 2007 with a double major in sociology and philosophy, and earned an M.A. in teaching, also from FSU, in 2010. Since then I have been teaching at both the secondary and post-secondary levels. My interests in philosophy include social and political philosophy, especially critical theory. Outside of philosophy I enjoy computer programming,
    amateur radio, camping and hiking, and playing guitar.
  • Keith Parkinson: My main academic interest is in ancient philosophy, especially with regard to the light it can shed on the history of philosophy, the philosophy of education, and questions about the individual and society. At UK I hope to explore these topics in some depth, while also gaining exposure to other philosophical traditions and points of view. Before coming to grad school I taught history, literature, and writing at two high schools in the Louisville area. I live in Louisville
    with my wife, Mary. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors (in cool weather), traveling around the continental US, and following NBA basketball.
  • Jarrad Felgenhauer: I’m from Spokane, Washington, however I’ve lived the majority of my life in rural Idaho. I received my BA in history from Lewis-Clark
    State College (Lewiston, ID) and my MA in Philosophy from Gonzaga University (Spokane, WA). My research interests are exclusively in Continental Philosophy including Hegelian-Marxism, Phenomenology, Postmodernism/Poststructuralism, and Hermeneutics. These are the “traditions” I find myself in most of the time, but as far as research “topics” I am interested in, that list is way too large!
