Lauren M. Ashwell

Associate Professor of Philosophy



Hedge Hall, Room 305


Ph.D., Massachusetts Institute of Technology; M.A., B.A., B.S., University of Auckland

Lauren Ashwell works primarily in metaphysics, philosophy of mind, and feminist philosophy, with particular interests in dispositions, desire, and objectification in each of these respective areas. In 2016-17, she was in residence at Harvard University, working on a project connecting her research in self-knowledge of desire with other work in feminist epistemology, and also continuing her work in philosophy of language on gendered slurs and hate speech. This leave was supported by a Bates Phillips Fellowship and an ACLS Frederick Burkhardt Fellowship.
