Emily Kay Williamson

Year of Enrollment: 

I work on philosophy of art and its intersection with epistemology and philosophy of emotion. My main focus is on the literary arts but I am interested more broadly in all forms of artwork and their cognitive significance, on a personal as well as on a social level. I am currently researching the role of emotional responses to artworks and their relevance to learning from close engagement with art.
