Hi! I'm Rachel. I do metaphysics & epistemology and feminist philosophy. I'm graduating from my undergrad institution in about three weeks, and then I'm off to Syracuse for grad school. My current interests are feminist metaphysics (Hey, the SEP thinks it's a real thing), mainly social construction, but I've also done quite a bit of work on Aristotle in the last few months. Other interests include traditional metaphysics, philosophy of language and philosophy of mind. I'm currently working on two papers: one in which I "make room" for self-knowledge of property possession in Sally Haslanger's externalist accounts of social construction, and one responding to a paper by Terrence Irwin about Aristotelian metaethics.

My dirty little secret is that I'm also a lit major, so I have a bit of background in (post)structuralism (Derrida, Foucault, Deleuze, Lacan) and 20th century literary theory (de Man, critical theory, Eve Kosofsky Sedgwick, etc). But that Rach doesn't get a chance to come out and play much these days.

Anyway, that's me!
