Impact and Engagement

I won the Scottish Graduate School of Arts and Humanities Prize Outreach and Impact in Philosophy Prize in 2016 LINK. My proposal (here) 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-rated paper on self-teaching to think about how tools from epistemology might help runners to teach themselves how to run.

From 2015-2017, I was involved with organising the St Andrews Society for Women and Minorities in Philosophy  (an affiliated chapter of MAP) and have 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.
