Research Interests: Gender Justice, Educational Justice, and Political Legitimacy
Gina Schouten received her PhD in 2013 from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, and has spent the past three year as Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Illinois State University. Her research interests include gender justice, educational justice, and political legitimacy. She has recently been working on projects concerning the legitimacy of political interventions to alter the gendered division of labor, in which she argues that progressive gender egalitarian political interventions can constitute legitimate exercises of political power. She is currently working on a series of papers that apply her work on political legitimacy to issues of educational justice. Gina has also written on the challenge of diversifying the discipline of philosophy, justice in higher education, and various topics in applied ethics.
