Brian Glenney joined the Norwich faculty in 2015. He holds a Ph.D. from the University of Southern California, an MLitt from St. Andrews University in Scotland, and a BS in Philosophy from the University of Washington.
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 graffiti subculture for the Huffington Post and Clout magazine.
His personal passions for defamiliarizing art and extreme mobility and advocacy coalesced into cofounding 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 New York state, Connecticut, and cities worldwide and is part of the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City.
