Dr. Cassie Herbert
I work at the intersections of social philosophy, feminist philosophy, and philosophy of language. In both my research and my teaching, I'm centrally interested in how systems of power, privilege, oppression, and resistance function in everyday interactions. I believe that the things we do in our daily lives matter, and can play a profound role in shaping our communities and our interactions with one another.
