Hannah Read

I am a PhD candidate in Philosophy at Duke. My work falls primarily within moral philosophy, including moral psychology, practical and applied ethics. I have additional interests in social and political philosophy, the philosophy of education, and feminist philosophy. My dissertation concerns the role of empathy in bridging divides between people who are sharply opposed on issues of moral, social, and political importance.  

Before coming to Duke, I completed my M.A. in Philosophy at Tufts, and before that I was a double major in Philosophy and Literary Studies at The New School.
