Doctoral student to discuss sexual violence in noon talk

Philosophy doctoral candidate Megan Burke will discuss her dissertation research during a noon talk on Wednesday, Jan. 21.

The talk, “Heterosexuality, Sexual Violence and the Temporality of Femininity,” will examine how sexual violence is integral to the production and lived experience of gendered subjectivity by focusing on the philosophical question of temporality.

Burke’s research and teaching interests include feminist philosophy, existential phenomenology, 20th century continental philosophy and social-political philosophy.

The talk will take place in the Jane Grant Conference Room (Room 330) in Hendricks Hall, and people are free to bring their own lunch. The talk is free and open to the public.
