Scholarly Interests

Sara Hardman’s primary research interests are in aesthetics, critical philosophy, and feminist philosophy as they pertain to teachers and to education. In her dissertation, she analyzed the West Virginia teacher strikes from the intersection of aesthetics and politics. She is continuing research at that nexus in several exciting projects this year. She is also interested in the emergent field of everyday aesthetics as it pertains to care ethics and education.
