BA '10 - The Philosophy of the Abnormal

Emma came to Gallatin from Berkeley, California, to integrate continental philosophy, psychoanalysis, literature, sexuality and gender studies, and horror/monster studies in her concentration, The Philosophy of the Abnormal. For it, she focused on ways that the normal/abnormal binary can be subverted. The tutorials and independent studies that contributed to her scholarship included a tutorial on madness with her adviser, Professor Sara Murphy, and a tutorial on monsters with Professor Patricia Lennox. "Because of my interrelated interests across disciplines," says Emma, "Gallatin has been wonderful for me, allowing me to study whatever I wanted and jump from discipline to discipline, making connections much more organically than I would have been able to do otherwise."
