About James Murphy

I graduated summa cum laude from the University of Notre Dame in 2021 with a B.A. in Philosophy, Gender Studies, and Italian. My main research interests concern the intersections between feminist philosophy and three further areas: metaphysics, applied ethics, and social and political philosophy. More specifically, I am interested in issues of dehumanization and personhood. I also have a broader interest in metaphysics beyond its intersections with feminist philosophy, particularly in mereology.
