Christine Daigle is Professor of Philosophy, Chancellor’s Chair for Research Excellence, and Director of the Posthumanism Research Institute. Her research has focused on Existentialism and Phenomenology, specifically the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, Jean-Paul Sartre, and Simone de Beauvoir. Her current research focuses on feminist theory and posthumanist thinking. Specifically, she is working on an ontological reconceptualization of the human being that understands our entanglement in being and with all other beings in a novel way. This research project has some ramifications in terms of environmental thinking and our collective and individual responsibility toward our individual, collective, and entangled selves.
