As part of the Society for Women in Philosophy speaker series, hosted by the School of Philosophy and Art History, Dr Simona Capisani discusses Livability and Justice for a Shifting Human Climate Niche.

Dr Simona Capisani received her PhD in Philosophy from the University of California, Irvine in 2018. She then spent three years at Harvard’s Mahindra Humanities Center, where she was part of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation research cohort on Migration and the Humanities. She is currently a Postdoctoral Research Associate at the Climate Futures Initiative at Princeton University in the High Meadows Environmental Institute and the University Center for Human Values. 

Simona's research focuses on issues that intersect matters of climate justice, philosophy of immigration, gender, and global and social justice, and her talk will focus on environmental justice. With a background both from philosophy, interdisciplinary studies and various NGO's, Simona's talk will be of interest to members from across the University. 

The talk is open to all and will be followed by a Q&A.
