Teaching Fellow in the Social Sciences

Parysa Mostajir is a Teaching Fellow in the Committee on the Conceptual and Historical Studies of Science and the College. Her research broadly focuses on the role of experience in structuring diverse human practices like science, art, and democracy. Working primarily within the pragmatist tradition of John Dewey, she has also published on the philosophy of art and philosophy of history of R. G. Collingwood. She teaches broadly on the history and philosophy of science, is a translator and transcriber for the Jane Addams Papers Project digital archives, and is currently working on setting up a multi-author academic blog dedicated to diversifying syllabi in the history of ideas. Her current project applies early-twentieth pragmatist arguments to recent conflicts between scientistic and humanistic philosophies of nature.
