Josephine Lovejoy

Credentials: Social Metaphysics, Feminist Philosophy


Josephine (Jojo) received her BA in philosophy and mathematics from Vassar College. Her primary research area is metaphysics, especially social ontology. She is currently thinking about how accounts of social construction can better capture intersectional insights and whether a ground-theoretic account of social construction adequately captures the phenomenon. She is also interested in certain questions in philosophical methodology, namely what impact (if any) normative concerns have on metaphysical theory, what makes a metaphysical question substantive, and what the practical goals of social ontology are. When she is not hiding in the Barn, she enjoys running, practicing yoga, reading essay collections and memoirs, going to Trader Joe’s, and sending podcast-length voice memos.
