Gillham joined the faculty of St. Bonaventure in 2019, where he is pre-law advisor, coaches mock trial, and co-directs the Center for Law & Society. Gillham’s primary devotion is teaching, although he maintains an active research agenda in ethics
and ancient philosophy.
My role as a professor of philosophy is to guide students through the logical space relevant to a particular course. As such, I aim to familiarize students with (1) the important philosophical questions pertinent to a given course, (2) the best answers that philosophers have given to these questions, and (3) the arguments for and against these answers. In doing so, students hone their capacities to ask good questions, construct arguments in response to them, and assess the merits of solutions developed by thinkers of historical significance.
In his free time Gillham enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with his wife and son, Lisa and Henry. Gillham also volunteers for civics education programs and directs St. Bonaventure’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Lecture Series.
