Dr. Esme Murdock
Dr. Murdock is an assistant professor of philosophy at San Diego State University.
Her research explores the intersections of social/political relations and environmental health, integrity, and agency. Specifically, her work troubles the purported stability of dominant, largely euro-descendent, and settler-colonial philosophies through centering conceptions of land and relating to land found within African American, Afro-Diasporic, and Indigenous eco-philosophies.
Murdock is looking forward to the opportunity to work on her first project and primary focus, a forthcoming book tentatively titled, Blood, Bone, & Land: Black Environmental Identities, Heritages, and Histories in Coastal South Carolina.
