Join us for a listen to the brightly spoken podcast from one of our latest additions to the CAL family in our Philosophy Department.
Andrea Daventry tells us about her educational path from sunny and balmy Florida to the wilds of the Connecticut River valley in Amherst, Massachusetts. And she adds where she settled on living in the Inland Empire (great pick!).
The courses she teaches at CSUSB include Introduction to Ethics, Feminist Philosophy and Sexual Ethics. She talks about how our students react to and participate in these classes.
Dr. Daventry specializes in Ethics, Social & Political Philosophy and Feminist Philosophy.
Her research and teaching interests focus on understanding how having a sense of self-worth contributes to autonomous agency, and how things like oppressive socialization or gaslighting can undermine autonomy by undermining self-respect. She's also interested in the moral importance of self-expression and the ethics of workplace dress codes.
