How will JHU spend its $75mil?

So JHU just got $75 million dollars, and they say they're planning to expand their department from 13 faculty members to 22 in the next few years. 9 is a lot of new jobs (for one department, and for our job market). How do you think they'll distribute the AOSes? What areas would they be smart to develop their talent in?

8 critical race theorists and an AOS: formal epistemology, AOC: applied ethics hire.

Hard to say. Michael Williams and Peter Achinstein are both older. Replacing them (and perhaps supplementing the ranks of the faculty with another epistemologist/ philosopher of science) I imagine would be on the list of priorities. Perhaps a senior-level metaphysics person?

^^Elanor Taylor who does phil-sci stuff among other cool work was recently hired.

The description of where the money's going to go sounds like they're mostly going after senior hires... or did I miss read it?

If I had this money, I would donate it to save children from easily cured diseases.

Idiot. If the diseases were "easily cured," the children would have been saved already.

That is patently false and wildly ignorant.

There's already a lot of money donated for that.
