Profile

I am a professor in the Department of Educational Foundations, teaching courses on the history and philosophy of education. My research interests include women’s/feminist pedagogical theories and social/political thought, women in the history of philosophy, and philosophy for children. I am currently working on projects to recover the writings of women philosophers in the U.S., 1840-1920.

At Montclair State, I support the work of the Institute for the Advancement of Philosophy for Children, the Institute for the Humanities, and the campus Safe Space program. I am also a member of MSU's Women's & Gender Studies Advisory Board, MSU's President's Commission on Affirmative Action, and MSU's chapter of the American Federation of Teachers, Local 1904. In the larger academic world, I am a member of the Society for the Advancement of American Philosophy, Society for the Study of Women Philosophers, Society of Women in Philosophy, and Society for US Intellectual History.
