Kathryn E. Joyce

I am a Postdoctoral Research Associate in Values & Public Policy at the Princeton University Center for Human Values and the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs Education Research Section. I received my PhD in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego in 2020.

I specialize in social and political philosophy, philosophy of education, and ethics. Within these areas I focus on egalitarianism and educational justice. My main project develops an account of equality in social and interpersonal relationships that emphasizes mutual accountability. I argue that this account illuminates relational dimensions of racial and gender (in)justice and explore its implications for a broader ideal of egalitarian justice. I also work on projects that explore philosophical dimensions of education policy and practice. To learn more, check out my research page.

Listen to me talk about racial (in)equality in higher education on the Ethics & Education podcast.
