Congratulations to Dr. Kyla Bruff!

On the 7th of March, 2022, Kyla successfully defended the first PhD in Philosophy in the history of Memorial University! Kyla's thesis, "Schelling's Political Philosophy," reconstructs the social and political thinking of the German Idealist, F.W.J. Schelling (1775-1854). Kyla's dissertation is the product of many years of research at Memorial and at various universities in Europe. The PhD was completed as a Cotutelle with the prestigious University of Freiburg in Germany. Dr. Bruff's two German examiners, Dr. Philipp Schwab and Dr. Lore Hühn, awarded her the highest grade possible in the German University System, Summa Cum Laude. The external examiner, Dr. Paul Franks from Yale University concurred. Dr. Bruff is in her first year of a tenure track position in philosophy at Carleton University.
