Fiona Jenkins

Associate Professor in Philosophy at Australian National University

My recent research has a particular focus on equity issues facing women in academia, and on developing a critical perspective on meritocracy as a practice and theory. I hold an ARC Discovery Grant 2015-17 “Gendered Excellence in the Social Sciences” with colleagues Dr Helen Keane, Em Professor Marian Sawer and Dr Claire Donovan. In my philosophical work I have also been developing a theory of democracy that pays particular attention to ways of valuing life and to practices of violence and non-violence. Judith Butler and Jean-Luc Nancy are important influences in this project, and I have written a series of papers that will comprise a monograph titled “Sensate Democracy, How Bodies Matter in a Common World”. I aim to develop public understanding of gender issues and foster capacity to redress the wide range of disadvantages women continue to suffer. The role includes advocacy for gender equity at ANU; fostering research collaborations and internal/external networks for gender research at ANU; hosting seminars and public lectures; deciding and administering grants; and mentoring of junior female colleagues and students.

Matthew Joseph

Mr at University of Sydney

PhD thesis abstract: The intuition that people ought to be free to move around the world in search of their own good seems prima facie plausible. Certainly, the contra claim – that is, that people should not be free to move around the world in search of their own good – seems counter to folk conceptions of liberty. However, this initial intuition conflicts with another intuition: that states have a right and perhaps even a duty to control the flow of people across their borders. My thesis investigates whether or not states do in fact have a legitimate reason to control the movements of civilians who are migrating in search of their own good.
