Cooklin’s paper accepted for NASSP conference


JUNE 12, 2020

Katie Cooklin, a Slippery Rock University professor of philosophy, wrote a researcher paper that was accepted for presentation by the North American Society for Social Philosophy for its International Social Philosophy Conference, July 16-18.

Cooklin's paper, titled "Troubling Consent: Neoliberal Narratives, Sexual Assault, and the Epistemology of Ignorance," examines how neoliberal accounts of consent may result in the blaming of sexual assault victims and contribute to the ignorance that obstructs and justifies structural constraints on women's agency.

NASSP's conference was originally scheduled at Neumann University but organizers are planning a virtual event.
