Anita Allen Is the Recipient of the Philip L. Quinn Prize
Anita L. Allen-Castellitto of University of Pennsylvania Carey School of Law has been selected as the 2021 recipient of the Philip L. Quinn Prize given by the American Philosophical Association (APA). The award recognizes service to philosophy and philosophers, and is the APA’s highest honor.
“This award means the world to me,” says Allen. “It reflects the unexpected success of my interdisciplinary commitments as a scholar, teacher, and mentor. It was remarkable to have been the first black woman APA president in 2018-19 and it’s a special achievement, as a black woman, to be receiving the highest award for service to the discipline.”
Allen will receive the award at a prize reception during an upcoming APA meeting. Learn more about the award here.
