I am a Visiting Assistant Professor in the Writing Program at Davidson College. I work in political philosophy, with broad interests in ethics and economics, the philosophy of law, and feminist theory.
My research focuses on the relationship between individual freedom and our interpersonal relations. I argue that human agency (in one crucial sense) emerges from our relationships with the other members of our communities. These relations construct us as particular kinds of persons: as owners of property, as members of families, as participants in various market relations, as citizens of our cities and states. I argue that a political concern for individual freedom targets the structures of these relationships, and the kinds of people they make us.
