Brian Glenney is Associate Professor in Philosophy. He is the co-editor of two volumes in Routledge’s Rewriting the History of Philosophy Book Series: Molyneux’s Question and the History of Philosophy and The Senses and the History of Philosophy. His academic scholarship appears in History of Philosophy Quarterly, Adam Smith Review, Journal of Sport and Social Issues, Journal for the Study of the New Testament, among other peer-reviewed journals. He has also written popular essays on skateboarding and graffiti subculture for the Huffington Post, Clout, and Thrasher Magazine. He has also won grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the National Institute of General Medical Sciences of the National Institutes of Health. His personal passions for defamiliarizing art and extreme mobility and advocacy coalesced into co-founding the Accessible Icon Project, a movement to transform the International Symbol of Access (the wheelchair symbol) into an active, engaged image. The Accessible Icon is now adopted by numerous states like New York and Connecticut, and cities worldwide and is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, and the Smithsonian Institute. He holds a PhD from the University of Southern California, an M.Litt. from St. Andrews University in Scotland, and a Bachelor of Arts in Philosophy from the University of Washington. He lives and skateboards with his partner and four children in Burlington, Vermont.
