Alec Stubbs

I am a philosopher and a postdoctoral fellow in the Department of Philosophy at the University of Massachusetts Boston & The Institute for Ethics and Emerging Technologies (IEET)

In the Fall of 2024 I will be joining Mills College at Northeastern University in Oakland as Assistant Teaching Professor of Philosophy and the Politics, Philosophy, and Economics (PPE) Program Coordinator.


My work focuses primarily on social and political philosophy as well as continental philosophy, existentialism, ethics, and philosophy of technology. I think and write about the meaning of work and play in our lives, economic democracy, post-capitalist alternatives, prefigurative social change, and meaning-making.


My teaching philosophy is informed by Ignatian pedagogical principles, critical pedagogy, transformative learning, and understanding philosophy as a way of life.
