Research & Scholarship

My interests in philosophy include the history of philosophy, particularly the ancient and modern periods, political philosophy, ethical theory, feminist thought, analytic philosophy, the philosophy of literature, and broadly the interrelationships between philosophy and other disciplines. I have a strong interest in the work of John Rawls and his critics, which was the topic of my dissertation; most recently I've begun a study of the work of Spinoza.
