Department of Philosophy and Religion
Additional Positions at AUPhilosophy Honor Society Coordinator
- I joined the American University faculty in 2008, and have been teaching courses in the history of philosophy, metaphysics, ethics, and feminist theory. My philosophical research focuses on critiques of the Western metaphysical tradition articulated by feminist theorists, as well as how the philosophical approach of twentieth century thinker Bernard Lonergan helps to clarify the relevance of metaphysical thinking to feminist theory. In addition, I am interested in the notion of epistemic authority, and the ethical challenges related to questions of belief, trust, and judgment.
