Lauren Bialystok

Philosopher, feminist, mother

I am Assistant Professor in the Department of Social Justice Education at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto. I hold a PhD in Philosophy (University of Toronto, 2009) and my research interests include ethics, identity, education, social and political philosophy, and feminism. I have also worked as a health policy analyst, sexual health educator, and volunteer high school debating leader. I love eating, cooking, reading stories to my kids, going to the theatre, and playing Scrabble.
