Currently Reading: Audi

Right now I am reading Robert Audi’s Democratic Authority and the Separation of Church and State. Audi will be presenting at Boston College’s Annual Contemporary Philosophy Workshop that I, along with my colleague Paul Van Rooy, am planning, so I want to be prepared to ask good questions. The workshop is October 13th at Boston College, and the topic will be public reason.

I will keep you updated when we finalize the schedule!

You can listen to an interview with Audi on the book if you are interested.

About Amelia M. Wirts, Esq.

Pronouns: She/Her/Hers or They/Their/Theirs I am an Assistant Professor of Philosophy at University of Washington, Seattle, and I work on philosophy of law, social/political philosophy, and feminism. My current research project argues that the criminal justice system in the United States oppresses people through policing, courts and punishments, and collateral consequences of convictions and arrests. Because this system is an oppressive one, I argue that those engaged in anti-rape and anti-domestic violence activism should not avail themselves of the criminal justice system to achieve their goals. Looking for other ways of fighting rape and domestic violence will actually serve victims and their communities better. In addition to obtaining my Ph.D. from Boston College in 2020, I also graduated from Boston College Law School in 2017 as a part of a dual degree program in philosophy and law at Boston College. I was admitted to the Massachusetts bar in January 2018.
