Dr. Serequeberhan came to Morgan State University in 2000 as an Associate Professor, was granted Tenure in 2003, and promoted to the rank of Full Professor in 2010. His work has a double focus (Continental and Africana philosophy) and is centered on social-political questions and concerns, broadly conceived. He is presently working on a book-length manuscript exploring our postcolonial "effective-history" (Gadamer), to be titled Thinking the Present.
