Peg O’Connor: Faculty Scholarship at Gustavus Posted on November 22nd, 2022 by

“My scholarship seeks to help people find meaning and value in both the ordinary and the extraordinary. This is also my aim in teaching. We encourage students to explore issues that matter to them because we scholars have experienced that intellectual intrigue and excitement. Teaching and scholarship are complementary enterprises; each makes the other better. Some of my best scholarly work has sprung from discussions in my courses while I have designed several classes around my areas of research. The technical expression for this is win-win.”

— Peg O’Connor,
Professor of Philosophy
2010 Winner of the Gustavus
