Dr. Nall teaches philosophy at Indian River State College (IRSC) and gender studies at FAU. In 2011 he earned the “Outstanding Adjunct Faculty Member” award from IRSC.
Dr. Nall is a full-time father of three children and married to his best friend. His research interests, which are significantly inspired and informed by his family experiences, range from childbirth, women and children’s oppression, men and masculinity, and the problem of U.S. militarism.
As an instructor, Dr. Nall aims to empower and enliven the critical-creative component each student possesses. Whether in teaching Intro to Philosophy, Humanities: Philosophy, or Sex and Gender in American Culture, his overarching goal is to encourage students to recognize and enact their role in life as culture creators rather than mere culture consumers.
As a social critic and scholar, Dr. Nall has given numerous addresses before a range of community organizations and religious congregations on topics including the problem of violence against women, creating peace, feminist masculinity, gender and childbirth, activism and civic engagement, the history of church-state separation, and the life and work of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
