Solidarity, Intersectionality
and Resisting Oppression
Thursday, Sept. 13, 4:30 p.m.
Carol Hay, associate professor of philosophy at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell, will speak about her seminal research work at the junction of ethics and feminist theory. Hay will discuss how we can re-purpose the major modern ethical traditions of liberalism and Kantian deontology for the project of resisting and replacing unjust forms of social and political oppression such as sexism, racism and classism.

Hay’s scholarly work focuses on issues in analytic feminism, liberal social and political philosophy, oppression studies and Kantian ethics. Hay earned the 2015 Gregory Kavka/UC Irvine Prize in Political Philosophy for “The Obligation to Resist Oppression,” Chapter 4 of her book Kantianism, Liberalism, and Feminism: Resisting Oppression.
