While I am passionate about feminist philosophy as a whole, I am especially excited about the historically-overlooked women philosophers of the early modern period.
Works in progress
Works in development
I currently hold a SSHRC Insight Development grant ($61,724) for the project "The Metaphysics of Marriage: Modern Women Philosophers." Broadly, this project seeks to examine the ways in which modern women philosophers conceived of marriage as a philosophical concept and how their theorizing was embedded in larger ongoing socio-political debates. The project also seeks to examine the ways in which genre influenced what and how these philosophers theorized about marriage.
I, along with Elena Gordon, also hold a SSHRC Connection Grant for our upcoming event
Women and Epistemic Emotions in the Early Modern Period at McMaster University on October 25-27 2024.
Research networks on early modern philosophers
Although research on early modern women philosophers is still fairly recent - only a few decades! - there is an extensive and productive research community. Below are links to some of the larger hubs of researchers working on these exciting and historically overlooked philosophers.
