Dear friends of Ordinary Philosophy:
My scribbling away continues!
I’ve just written an article for the University of Glasgow’s Beniba Centre for Slavery Studies. It discusses James McCune Smith’s early years as a scholar and his years at the University of Glasgow, where he earned his bachelor’s, master’s, and medical degrees between 1832-1837. As you’ll see in the article, McCune Smith’s time in Glasgow deeply influenced him and helped make him the intellectual and activist powerhouse he became.
I hope you enjoy what you read!
