B. R. George

(03/2019: This site is currently minimal while I work on reorganizing, and rewriting, and generally updating it. I hope to have real content up soon.)

I'm B. R. George, an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Carnegie Mellon University. I received my PhD in Linguistics from UCLA in 2011. I occasionally teach a course on constructed languages and frequently drink an alarming amount of tea. My pronouns are "they"/"them"/"their"/"theirs"/"themself", and in first name contexts I go by "B", pronounced like "🐝".

Research interests:

  • "What does that even mean?" - semantics, pragmatics, logic, philosophy of language
  • "Grievance Studies" - feminist philosophy, trans studies, epistemic justice
