Our research focuses on philosophical topics of public interest. We have expertise in the philosophy of disability, love, work, gender, justice, religion, law, dance, and the environment, among other areas of public philosophy. The research we undertake is shaped by our strengths in the history of philosophy, as well as theoretical approaches emerging from Marxist, civic republican, phenomenological, and pragmatist traditions.
The group aims to support research in public philosophy from across the university. To that end, we hold academic conferences, reading groups, work-in-progress seminars, and talks, in addition to hosting research projects. We are particularly keen to hear from potential PhD students interested in developing doctoral projects in any of our areas of expertise.
