Greetings, I'm Eduardo Duarte, Professor in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, Hofstra University, where I have been teaching courses in philosophy since 1996. I am currently a faculty member in the department of Teaching, Learning, Technology. I earned both my Doctorate and Masters in Philosophy at the New School for Social Research, and my Baccalaureate in Philosophy from Fordham University. I am the author of Being and Learning (Sense Publishers: 2012), and Beyond Fragmentation, Toward Polyphony (LAP: 2010), and co-editor of Foundational Perspectives in Multicultural Education (Longman: 2000). I've published my scholarship in Studies in Philosophy and Education, Educational Philosophy and Theory, Educational Studies, LAPIZ, Encounter, Educational Theory, and the Journal of Philosophy of Education. I was program chair for the Philosophy of Education Society 2015 Memphis meeting “The Blues/Soul Music,” and edited the proceedings Philosophy of Education 2015 (University of Illinois: 2016) http://ojs.ed.uiuc.edu/index.php/pes. Links to Being and Learning, and my archived papers in academia.edu can be accessed using the Graphic tab (above). Under the guise of Professor Iguana, I am host and producer of The Dead Zone,Musings, Drums, and Black Diamond Discography, radio programs broadcast on 88.7FM WRHU.ORG (Radio Hofstra University) that are dedicated to exploring improvisational music, and, in some cases, the philosophical implications or the musicality of improvisation. These recordings are archived on SoundCloud and Archive.org and can be accessed through the Sonic tab (above). My current scholarship is focusing on blues reason, as well as the ontology of rhythm and the musicality of Being. Along with colleagues from Boston College, Columbia U, Northwestern U, and NYU, I have been part of a group that is studying the work of Jean-Luc Nancy. That project has enabled me to expand my research on resonant subjectivity and intersubjectivity. In my research and teaching I have taken inspiration from Luce Irigaray’s call for the invention of a 'new logic' of thinking. I also continue to explore Du Bois’ deployment of the spirituals, which is to say, the musicality/lyrical form of Du Bois philosophy. These interdisciplinary research initiatives, guided by the mantra "more poetry, less prose," represent my ongoing experiments in hermeneutical phenomenology, which I initiated with my book Being and Learning.
