Research 

My work is problem-focused, specifically reflecting on the possibility of a world wherein presently subjugated peoples can exist in cooperatively-determined communities without fear of violent domination or the objectification that affords said violence. To that end, my teaching and research take place at the intersection of social-political philosophy, applied ethics, critical race theory, conflict resolution, decolonial theory, and global studies. I have taught a range of courses related to this work and my publications have appeared in peer-reviewed journals such as the International Journal of Transitional Justice, Critical Philosophy of Race, and Journal for Peace and Justice Studies. I am a co-editor of the Radical Philosophy Review. I also have a book forthcoming with Rowman and Littlefield titled Anti-Colonial Solidarity: Race, Reconciliation, and MENA Liberation. When not working the academic grind, I enjoy spending time with my family, being outside, and practicing martial arts. You can learn more about me here: gnfourlas.com
