Tawny Whaley (she/they) just recently graduated with her master’s degree in philosophy. She currently is an adjunct professor for some of the community colleges in her city. Her current work is in feminist philosophy, feminist philosophy of mind, queer theory, and social philosophy. Her overarching goal is to find new ways to educate and introduce young students to the discipline of philosophy. She hopes that through her work via academically or through outreach programs she is able to help underrepresented voices in philosophy have their lasting seat at the table.
