Andreja Novakovic to join our faculty

We’re delighted to announce that Andreja Novakovic (PhD., Columbia University), currently at UC Riverside, is joining us as an Associate Professor. Andreja works on post-Kantian Continental Philosophy, with a particular focus on Hegel. We look forward to welcoming her in Fall 2019.

Professor Hubert L. Dreyfus Memorial Fund

We are delighted to announce the establishment of an endowment in memory of long-time Berkeley professor Hubert Dreyfus, who passed away on April 22 2017.
Income from the endowment will be used to support faculty and graduate students working in Continental Philosophy at Berkeley. We are deeply grateful to all the contributors to the endowment, and to Genevieve Boissier-Dreyfus who coordinated the fundraising. It is wonderful that, after all Bert’s extraordinary contributions to Continental Philosophy at Berkeley during his lifetime, his name will continue to be associated with the support of Continental Philosophy in our department in the future.
