Current Research

My thesis looks at how contemporary public debates around 'Safe Space' policies tie into important issues around inclusive education and discursive norms. It incorporates aspects of virtue and vice epistemology, philosophy of education, feminist philosophy and philosophy of race in order to create a conceptual framework for understanding what safe spaces are and should be. I aim to develop an understanding of safety which is sensitive to vulnerabilities that arise as a result of social identity and oppression. In particular, I am interested in the level of authority agents have when recounting their experiences of oppression and how discursive norms should reflect this authority.
