Inequality, Identities, and Justice Postdoctoral Fellow

Leila Ben Abdallah is the Einaudi Center's postdoctoral fellow in Inequality, Identities, and Justice. Her research addresses the collapse of moral emotions when wielded to elicit understanding of violence and to contest oppression. Grounded in the study of nineteenth- and twentieth-century settler colonial United States, she approaches these questions from the history of political thought, Indigenous political thought, moral philosophy, and anticolonial thought. She earned her Ph.D. in Political Science from Yale University.
