Brady Scholars Program Postdoctoral Fellow
Laura Martin is the Postdoctoral Fellow in the Brady Scholars Program and Department of Philosophy. She received her PhD in Philosophy from Columbia University in 2020. Her areas of specialization are social and political philosophy, feminist philosophy, and Frankfurt School Critical Theory. Her recent research focuses on the nature of social reality. In particular, she is interested in how we both create and come to be constrained by structural forms of oppression, and what this reveals about human agency. Her other philosophical interests include the concept of the public sphere, how processes of commodification and objectification change our understanding of ourselves and others, and the nature of social critique.
