I am a graduate student at Temple University. Currently I am working on finishing my dissertation, which is on the topic of creativity. Creativity, I argue, is usually conceptualized as a property of an individual human agent and as an essentially cognitive phenomenon. In opposition to this, I want to argue that creativity must be seen as embodied and embedded in particular environments, and as extended or distributed across a variety material and social systems. My research draws from various bodies of literature, including cognitive science, feminist epistemology, disability theory, and science and technology studies. My other areas of interest include contemporary continental philosophy, critical theory, philosophy of art, and social and political philosophy.
