Dr. Eric Bain-Selbo

I'm the Department Head of Philosophy and Religion at Western Kentucky University and Co-Founder of the WKU Institute for Citizenship and Social Responsibility. I'm also serving as the Executive Director of the Society for Values in Higher Education. My research spans across the disciplines of philosophy and religious studies, focusing primarily on social and political ethics, cultural criticism, and issues in higher education. I've authored a number of articles and three books: Game Day and God: Football, Faith, and Politics in the American South (2009), Judge and Be Judged: Moral Reflection in an Age of Relativism and Fundamentalism (2006), and Mediating the Culture Wars: Dialogical Virtues in Multicultural Education (2003). I've worked with the other core faculty on developing the Master's in Social Responsibility and Sustainable Communities and teach ICSR 510: Perspectives on Social Justice.
