Laura Wildemann Kane is a PhD Candidate in Philosophy and a Digital Initiatives Fellow at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her research interests primarily concern topics in social ontology, social philosophy, and political philosophy. Her dissertation will attempt a social ontology of the family that is not dependent upon biological or legal classification. The aim of her proposal is to expand both the definition of family and the purpose of family life in political philosophy beyond the mere reproduction of future citizens. She is also interested in the social and political implications of technology; specifically, what role social media technologies play in defining and re-defining privacy and publicity. Laura is also a student in the Interactive Technology and Pedagogy Certificate Program, where she has learned to develop digital solutions to challenges faced by educators. Her Wiki, Enlightened Educators, was created as a venue for educators to come together and collaborate with one another to develop the most effective lesson strategies for teaching specific content to students in higher education. Laura currently teaches at Hunter College of the City University of New York and is an elected member of the Graduate Council, the Student Steering Committee, and the Student and Alumni Affairs Committee. She has previously served as an At-Large Representative for the Doctoral Students’ Council.
