Welcome to my website. I am Rafael Nájera, currently a Term Instructor in the Humanities Department at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Starting July 1st, 2013 and for two years I’ll be a Post-doctoral Fellow at Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island, USA.
Another Rafael Nájera much more famous than me and some decades older is Rafael Nájera Morrondo, a Spanish microbiologist; I am not related to him in any way.
I finished my PhD in Philosophy at McGill University in Montreal, Québec, Canada, in April 2012, with a thesis on the notion of scientia in the Latin West in the twelfth century under the supervision of Calvin Normore (McGill/UCLA) and Carlos Fraenkel (McGill). My internal examiner was Stephen Menn (McGill/Humbolt-Berlin) and my external was Henrik Lagerlund (Western Ontario).
