Dedicated Listeners, welcome our friend, colleague, and new Always Already co-host, Emily Crandall!
Emily Crandall is a PhD student and Enhanced Chancellor’s Fellow in the department of Political Science at the CUNY Graduate Center, with a certificate in Women’s Studies. She holds a BA in Political Theory from UC San Diego. Her proposed dissertation (tentatively titled, “Imagined Futures: the Discursive Limits of Positivism and Rationality”) analyzes the discourse of the climate change denier through the lens of feminist epistemology and science studies as a means to interrogate the extent to which deniers and skeptics may in fact exist within the same ideological realm, or be constrained by the same philosophical tradition, as that of non-deniers. Emily was recently selected to participate in the upcoming (summer 2015) NEH Institute, “Development Ethics and Global Justice: Gender, Economics, Environment” at Michigan State University. In her spare time she enjoys napping and lecturing strangers about sexism.
You may remember Emily from her guest co-hosting on the Laclau episode (and b-side), and she will now be a full-time host along with Rachel, B, and John. Most episodes will be a rotating cast of three co-hosts from the four of us – and this should facilitate a more regular recording schedule with the added flexibility.
Look forward to Emily’s brilliance coming at you in her first episode later this week, on Maurice Merleau-Ponty.
