Morganna Lambeth, Ph.D.

Assistant Professor of Philosophy


I work in the history of philosophy (especially, German philosophy) and aesthetics. Most of my current research asks how bias interacts with our interpretation of texts. On the one hand, I consider how we should interpret philosophers (like Kant) who incorporate prejudices into their philosophical works; how do these prejudices sit with their more widely embraced philosophical views? On the other hand, I am also interested in how reader bias can impact their interpretation of texts, with recent research considering how reader bias can obstruct their reading of novels.

In addition to my research interests, I have teaching interests in Latin American philosophy, and I would welcome the opportunity to collaborate with students in this area.
