Michaela Manson


BA Concordia, MA SFU


I earned an M.A. in Philosophy at Simon Fraser University (Vancouver, 2015) and a B.A. Hons. in Philosophy from Concordia University (Montreal, 2012) with minors in Film Studies, and Classical Languages and Literature (Latin). More recently, I was the recipient of a Mellon Foundation scholarship as a student in UCLA’s post-baccalaureate program in post-classical Latin. (2016) My philosophical interests center around the early modern period, with a particular concern for questions about mind, cognition, perception, and understanding. I also maintain interests in feminist philosophy, and the philosophies of mind, language, and communication.
