About

Stacey

I am ABD in philosophy at Boston University.  My research is at the intersection of philosophy of science, feminist philosophy, and social epistemology. In general, I am interested in issues of social and self-identity, ideals of rationality and objectivity, and the social construction of knowledge. My research often incorporates work from social psychology.

My dissertation argues for a new account of stereotype threat that is latent in current social psychology research, but remains under-examined by psychologists and philosophers. Specifically, most researchers focus on stereotype threat’s effects on individuals’ performance, whereas I argue that the  phenomenon more centrally concerns the pressure it puts on self-identity. As a result, we need to rethink what stereotype threat is, what its implications for our everyday lives are, and how it may be contributing to under-representation in academia.
