CEPA Public Lecture: Serene J. Khader
Jay Newman Chair in Philosophy of Culture, Brooklyn College & Professor of Philosophy and Women's and Gender Studies, CUNY Graduate Center
Serene J. Khader is the Jay Newman Chair in Philosophy of Culture at Brooklyn College and Professor of Philosophy and Women's and Gender Studies at the CUNY Graduate Center. Professor Khader's research interests are in the values that underlie feminist theory and political practice - especially on issues related to women in the global South.
Professor Khader's two books, Decolonizing Universalism: A Transnational Feminist Ethic (2018) and Adaptive Preferences and Women's Empowerment (2011), were published by Oxford University Press. She has also published in top-rated journals such as the Journal of Moral Philosophy, Hypatia, and the Journal of Global Ethics.
Professor Khader's current project, The Freedom Myth, is a trade book about why we need to stop thinking feminism's core value is freedom and start thinking it is equality.
