Kellyn Lewis '12

Kellyn Lewis was an African American Studies and Philosophy major in the Weinberg School of Arts and Sciences with a strong interest in the work of Frantz Fanon. He was highly involved on campus and in community and labor organizing. His research as a Mellon Fellow worked to critique the social contracts of liberal thinkers in the canon of Western liberal philosophy and work through difficult concepts of important political theorists who establish the colonial and racial gestures of the historical work. Since graduating Kellyn has driven his research interests through various intellectual endeavors by both taking a series of philosophy courses in the canon of Continental tradition, while also doing independent work in critical philosophy and political economy with Dr. Charles Mills. He is looking to enroll in graduate school in the fall of 2015 where he hopes to engage in the Islamification of theoretical knowledge.
