Anna’s research is in social/political philosophy, feminist philosophy, Indigenous philosophy, and social epistemology. Her doctoral thesis articulates a novel theoretical framework of settler ignorance, which reveals how the elimination of Indigenous peoples requires their delegitimatization as knowers. Both her teaching and research revolve around a considerationof voice and community, and how we are able to hear each other in and out of the classroom. Her dissertation raises this question as it pertains to settler Canadians’ ability and willingness to hear testimonies of structural settler colonial violence, and her teaching prioritizes the development of students’ critical voice.
