St. Joseph’s University is set to host a lecture by renowned philosopher Dr. Eva Feder Kittay on Oct. 26 at the Long Island Campus’ McGann Conference Center.
Dr. Feder — a distinguished professor emerita of philosophy at Stony Brook University who is known for her groundbreaking work in philosophy, focusing on feminism, care, and disability — will explore the concept of “Care as Infrastructure.”
At the event, which is scheduled during common hour from 12:40-2 p.m., Dr. Kittay will explain why “Care as Infrastructure” goes beyond being a metaphor and why it holds important significance.
For those unable to attend in person, the event will be available on Zoom.
Her extensive career includes several publications, with her latest book, “Learning from My Daughter: The Value and Care of Disabled Minds,” for which she earned the PROSE prize for the best book in philosophy in 2020.
