Tuesday 25 June 2019

This week in Pogos we welcome Dr Michelle Panchuk to the podcast. This interview took place during our recent Logos Conference, so in addition to looking at some of Dr Panchuk’s recent work on hermeneutical injustice and religious trauma, we explored some of the ways in which interdisciplinary discussion has been helpful between philosophy, theology, feminism, and a number of other areas of academic inquiry. We hope you enjoy!

Doctor Michelle Panchuk (Assistant Professor of Philosophy, Murray State University) works on such disparate fields as philosophy of religion, trauma theory, and feminist philosophy, although she has also worked on several other area including the relationship of abstract objects to a God characterized by simplicity and aseity and, with Julie Swanstrom, the metaphysics of soul-splitting as articulated in the Harry Potter series.
