Impact and Engagement

The term ‘fake news’ is doing great harmThe Conversation 

I won the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities Outreach and Impact in Philosophy Prize in 2016. My proposal was for an event that used work in epistemology — particularly work about know-how and self-knowledge — to help amateur runners approach their training. I was inspired by Ryle’s massively under-read paper on self-teaching to think about how tools from epistemology might help runners to self-coach.

From 2015-2017, I was involved with organising the St Andrews Society for Women and Minorities in Philosophy  (an affiliated chapter of MAP) and helped with organising a lecture series, mentoring scheme for students from groups which are underrepresented in Philosophy, and a project to diversify reading lists for undergraduate units.
