Deimy Chavez

My interests are in feminist philosophy, drawn from both the analytic and continental traditions. I am particularly interested in (gendered/sexual/racial) harm’s power to produce error, ignorance, misattribution, and other epistemic defects. Within feminist philosophy, I also have interests in the debates and discourses around abortion, transness, sexual difference, sex work, and sexual violence.
I have secondary academic interests in social philosophy, egalitarianism, ethics, Marxism, writings about the self, theology, and linguistics.
My non-academic interests include cooking, knitting, ice skating, and dancing.
Before starting my PhD I attended The University of Chicago, where I studied Gender and Sexuality, Linguistics, and Philosophy.
