Congratulations to Joseph Martin

Joseph Martin (2011-2012 Dissertation Writing Fellow) began a fixed-term Assistant Professorship at Lyman Briggs College, Michigan State University this year. His paper, "Is the Contingentist/Inevitabilist Debate a Matter of Degrees?" appeared in the December 2013 issue of Philosophy of Science. Three of his articles are slated to appear in 2015: "Evaluating Hidden Costs of Technological Change: Scaffolding, Agency, and Entrenchment" in Techné: Research in Philosophy and Technology; "What's in a Name Change? Solid State Physics, Condensed Matter Physics, and Materials Science," in Physics in Perspective; and "Fundamental Disputations: How Philosophical Debates Structured Solid State Physics" in Historical Studies in the Natural Sciences. Along with Michael Gordin of Princeton University, Joe is now co-convener of the Consortium's working group on the history of the physical sciences.
