Dr. Gregory F. Pappas

Gregory Fernando Pappas is a Distinguished Research Fellow for the Latino Research Initiative at The University of Texas at Austin and Professor of Philosophy at Texas A & M University. Dr. Pappas works within the American Pragmatist and Latin American traditions in ethics and social-political philosophy. His current research project, “An Inter-American Approach to the Problems of Injustice”, develops a theoretical framework for approaching problems of injustice in Latino communities, drawing on the insights of philosophers (e.g., Luis Villoro, Gloria Anzaldua, Jane Addams, John Dewey) concerned with local injustices in different regions of the Americas. 

On October 25, 2017, Dr. Pappas presented his work and discussed the effect social media has on democracy. Read more about his lecture on the Media Ethics Initiative’s website.
