Matt S. Whitt
Matt S. Whitt’s work in political philosophy examines the ways that communities define themselves through acts of exclusion and marginalization. At Duke, Matt shares his scholarly interests with students in two WR101 courses: “We the People,” which focuses on the boundaries of democracy, and “Land of the Free,” which examines ideals of freedom and practices of incarceration in the United States. In addition to his other research, he is developing a pedagogy article on epistemic responsibility and self-reflective learning. Matt tweets at@MattSWhitt.
