Audrey Lane Ellis is a philosopher trained in the traditions of phenomenology, ethics, and aesthetics, in addition to women’s, gender, and sexuality studies. Her research is focused on contemporary philosophies of embodied knowledge and corporeal ethics, with an emphasis on how these theories are materialized in dance practices and improvisational art practices more generally. She received her MA in Philosophy and Art at Stony Brook University and will receive her PhD in Philosophy from Stony Brook University in 2020. She has published numerous reviews as a dance and art critic for The L Magazine, Brooklyn Magazine and CultureBot, as well as in Dance Research Journal in April 2019. She has received commissions for her professional chorographic work from Hobart and William Smith College (Geneva, NY), The Finger Lakes Community Arts Grant (Hornell, NY), The Capeizo Ballet Makers New York City Grant (NYC), as well as performance venues such as Triskelion Arts (NYC), Dixon Place (NYC), Metropolis Opera Project (Ithaca, NY), and Atlas Studios (Newburgh, NY). Ellis recently received a Distinguished Travel Award through Stony Brook University to present her research at an international conference and in 2017 received the University wide President’s award for “Excellence in Teaching by a Graduate Student.” Ellis’s course offerings have included “Social and Political Philosophy,” “The Phenomenology of Race,” “Philosophical Engineering,” “The Politics of Dance,” “Logical Thinking,” and “Phenomenology and The Work of Art.”
