Misak as Provost

Cheryl Misak has been appointed Provost of the University of Toronto. This is a very good choice; Cheryl is one of those rare academics who manages to well on both the administrative and scholarly sides of modern academia, and she has a good practical knack for putting things in working order.

She has done some excellent work on pragmatism; her work on the relation between Peircean pragmatism and deliberative democracy is especially interesting. Thanks to Edinburgh University Press and Episteme, you can read some of her work in that area.
