Educated at the Katholieke Universiteit, Leuven, Belgium, Hunter College, and the University of Maryland, where she earned her Ph.D., Anna Christina Soy Ribeiro is associate professor of philosophy at Texas Tech University. She specialized in aesthetics and the philosophy of art, and is on the Board of Trustees of the American Society for Aesthetics. Her main research project currently is a monograph entitled Beautiful Speech: The Nature, Origins, and Powers of Poetry (forthcoming from Oxford University Press), where she offers a "comprehensive philosophical theory of poetry, drawing on cognitive and evolutionary psychology, pragmatics and metrical phonology in linguistics, and work in disciplines such as classics, anthropology and archaeology on oral literary traditions ancient and contemporary." In 2012, Texas Tech selected her as one of its "Integrated Scholars," for excellence in teaching, research, and service, and you can read and watch her interview here.

The Sapientia Lecture Series is funded by The Mark J. Byrne 1985 Fund in Philosophy.
