Associate Professor of Philosophy



Dr. O'Donnell's research specializes in the history of natural philosophy, early modern philosophy, and environmental ethics. She is particularly interested in the ways in which 17th Century arguments about the nature of the cosmos point to contemporary possibilities for understanding materialism, feminism, horizontal ontologies, and new approaches to knowing and relating to the natural world.
