Event Description

Organized by the Tulane Philosophy Department, Faculty Seminars are a series of workshops where Center for Ethics Faculty Fellows and distinguished guest speakers present works in progress on ethics, political philosophy, political theory, moral psychology, the philosophy of law, and intellectual history. Papers are distributed one week beforehand to the participants who read the paper and prepare discussion questions for the presenter.

Kristin Voigt is an Assistant Professor, jointly appointed in the Institute for Health and Social Policy and the Department of Philosophy of McGill University. She received her DPhil in political philosophy from the University of Oxford and has held post-doctoral positions at McGill, Harvard, Lancaster University and the European College of Liberal Arts. Kristin’s research focuses on egalitarian theories of distributive justice and the links between philosophy and social policy.

Her recent and ongoing projects address issues such as conceptions and measures of health and health inequality; the use of incentives to improve health outcomes; (childhood) obesity; higher education policy; and smoking and tobacco control.
