The Department of Philosophy would like to express its gratitude to Dr. Theodore Locke for three years of excellent teaching. Dr. Locke went over and above during his limited-term appointment at Concordia, stepping in to teach new courses when unforeseen circumstances arose, supervising TAs, and teaching hundreds of students, all while navigating the extreme difficulties of the pandemic. His always friendly and easy-going manner was a boon to our department during these trying times. He is now moving on to a visiting assistant professor position at Trinity University in San Antonio, Texas. We wish Dr. Locke the best of success in his future academic path and career.
Theodore Locke graduated with a PhD in Philosophy from the University of Miami in Spring 2018. He works on issues in metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophical logic. He is currently writing a book manuscript on deflationary approaches to counterpossibles and metaphysical explanation. He also works on issues at the intersection of social ontology and social philosophy.
Dr. Locke has taught a broad range of philosophy courses. In particular, he is passionate about teaching courses that show students the wide application of metaphysics and philosophy of language such as social ontology, the philosophy of love, and self and other.
In addition to philosophy, he enjoys criticism and contemporary poetry. One day he hopes to combine all three interests in a book-length project.
