Philosophy/Critical Theory


About

Activities in this cluster engage in collaborative critical theory scholarship across the disciplines (e.g., in law, history, literature, sociology, philosophy), and across interdisciplinary areas (including critical race theory, queer theory, feminist theory, crip/disability theory), while also taking up diverse specializations in the field of philosophy. For example, working groups explore an array of critical theory issues, such as the interplay between knowledge norms and structural inequality, or the politics, histories, sociologies, and embodiments of knowledge, while other groups focus more on specializations in philosophy as a field (e.g., ethics, social and political philosophy, Anglo-American philosophy, metaphysics, continental philosophy, philosophy of language, philosophy of mind, existentialism, epistemology, logic, and more).
