Kate Vredenburgh works mainly in the philosophy of social science, on topics that intersect with ethics, political philosophy, epistemology, and metaphysics. From 2019-2020, She will be a postdoctoral fellow at the McCoy Family Center for Ethics in Society at Stanford University, before taking up an Assistant Professorship at the London School of Economics in 2020. Her research and teaching are increasingly interdisciplinary, at the intersection of philosophy, economics, and computer science.
The Political Theory Workshop offers faculty and other scholars an opportunity to present "in progress" or recently completed work to a diverse audience from political science, philosophy, law, and other social sciences and humanities. Workshop papers come from all areas of political theory, including normative and positive theory, legal theory, and the history of political thought. Papers are circulated ten days before the seminar. Participants are expected to read the paper before the workshop. Each session begins with comments and questions on the paper by a discussant, a brief response from the author, followed by a general discussion.
