Academic Interests

I work on Heidegger and aesthetics, primarily as the two relate to Post-Kantian philosophy. I am interested in phenomenology and Continental philosophy in general and I am interested in modernism as a philosophical and artistic problem. I am also interested in the relation between situation and personal identity in ethics, and find phenomenology, feminist thought and Aristotle all to be very helpful in thinking about this relationship. 


I teach FIL 2505/4532: Continental Philosophy, focusing on phenomenology, in fall 2015 and in spring 2016 FIL 4700/2104: Philosophical Aesthetics, where we will read Hegel's aesthetics in conversation with more recent work in the philosophy of art. I also lecture for Ex.Phil. and our new department-wide Ex.Fac.
