Curriculum Vitae

Bio

Eve A. Browning is very happy to have joined the UTSA Department of Philosophy & Classics in Fall 2014 and become a Roadrunner.  She grew up in Florida and attended the University of Florida for undergrad, and University of California San Diego for grad school.  Later she joined the Philosophy faculty of the University of Minnesota Duluth and learned the dire meaning of the phrase, "Winter is coming."  She has published in the areas of ancient philosophy, ethics, feminist philosophy, popular culture, classical studies, and philosophies of animal intelligence.  Her hobbies include running, horseback-riding, playing the violin, and singing in choirs.  She is pictured here with her very kind horse, Gentle John.
