Before coming to Marywood in the Fall of 2007, Dr. Jenkins taught at University of Arkansas at Little Rock, Hunter College and John Jay College, both in New York City, and Temple University, in Philadelphia, PA. His current areas of research are philosophy of art (especially music and expression), philosophy of mind (especially questions surrounding the social nature of the self and emotions), and ethics. Dr. Jenkins has two papers forthcoming in 2011: "The Blues as Cultural Expression," which will be included in Blues and Philosophy, edited by Jesse Steinberg and Abrol Fairweather, and "Formal and Informal Music Educational Practices," which will appear in Philosophy of Music Education Review. His book reviews have appeared in Metapsychology, Philosophy in Review, Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism, and Philosophical Psychology (forthcoming 2011).
Dr. Jenkins has had a lifelong interest in psychology and the arts, particularly painting, photography, dance, and theater, as well as rock, alternative, classical, and avant-garde music. Jenkins is a drummer and has been a member of many rock bands over the years; including the space rock collective Surface of Eceon with whom he recorded two full length records and several compilations in the early 2000's.
