Gillian Russell

Philosophy Professor at UNC Chapel Hill


I’m a philosopher at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Before coming here in 2015 I taught at Washington University in St Louis.  My Ph.D. is from Princeton (2004) and before that I was an undergraduate at Scotland’s University of St Andrews. Along the way I’ve been a Killam Memorial Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Alberta, a visitor at UC Berkeley and at Melbourne University, and a visiting fellow at Tilburg Center for Logic and the Philosophy of Science in the Netherlands.

I wrote a book on the analytic/synthetic distinction which was published by Oxford University Press in 2008.

Here’s a copy of my CV [pdf]. It was last updated in 2015. There’s a list of my publications here.
