Breakfast Series with Professor Sally Haslanger

Wednesday, March 13, 2024 at 8:00am to 9:30am

Emma Rogers Room, Emma Rogers Room 10-340

The Breakfast Series is a regular series from the MIT Women's League.  Women in the MIT community are invited to join us to hear from women faculty and administrators explore the role of women in the academy, sharing the pathways their professional lives have taken — the people and events that have influenced their direction.

A full plated breakfast will be served, prepared by Chef Patrick Campbell.

Our Spring speaker is Sally Haslanger, Ford Professor of Philosophy and Women’s and Gender Studies at MIT.  She has published in metaphysics, epistemology, feminist theory, and critical race theory.  Broadly speaking, her work links issues of social justice with contemporary work in epistemology, metaphysics, philosophy of language, and philosophy of mind. A collection of her papers that represent this effort over twenty years was collected in Resisting Reality: Social Construction and Social Critique (Oxford 2012), and it received the Joseph B. Gittler award for outstanding work in philosophy of the social sciences. She has co-edited three books that further reflect the breadth of her interests: with Elizabeth Hackett, Theorizing Feminisms: A Reader (Oxford 2005); with Charlotte Witt, Adoption Matters: Philosophical and Feminist Essays (Cornell 2005); with Roxanne Marie Kurtz, Persistence: Contemporary Readings (MIT Press 2006).

Tickets, which include a full cooked breakfast, are $10, and payable by check or cash.  Space is limited. Please email kbennett@mit.edu to RSVP, and let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
