Megan Craig is a painter and an Associate Professor of Philosophy and Art at Stony Brook University. She teaches course in aesthetics, ethics, French phenomenology, and American philosophy. She also has strong interests in psychoanalysis. Her first book, Levinas and James: Toward a Pragmatic Phenomenology, was published with Indiana University Press in November of 2010. She edited the text Art? No Thing, Analogies between Science, Art, and Philosophy, by the Dutch artist and theorist Fré Ilgen. Recent articles include “Deleuze and the Force of Color,” “James and the Ethical Importance of Grace,” “The Infinite in Person: Levinas and Emily Dickinson,” “Locked-In,” “Cora’s World,” and “Slipping Glancer: Painting Place with Edward Casey.” Craig’s new research is focused around accounts of memory, sensibility, and the ethical importance of ambiguity – with a particular focus on sensation, synaesthesia, color and color perception. Craig has exhibited her paintings nationally and internationally. Recent solo shows include “Views” at Kunstverein Grafschaft Bentheim in Germany, “Lines of Flight” at Sundaram Tagore Gallery in New York, and “If and How” at Scott and Bowne Fine Art in Connecticut. Craig has been awarded painting residencies and grants from several institutions including the Pollack Krasner Foundation, The Weir Farm Trust, The Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, Vermont Studio Center, and the New York Arts Foundation.
