My research is at the intersection of moral psychology, social and political philosophy, and feminist philosophy. I also have an interest in bioethics.
My book Hope Under Oppression (Oxford University Press, 2021) explores the nature and value of hope under conditions of oppression. It also highlights the relationship between hope, trust, anger, bitterness, and faith, and develops an account of collective hope in solidarity movements.
I am currently working on a range of projects in moral psychology including the nature of despair and its effects on mental health, apology and forgiveness, and the risks of anger.
Please feel free to email me at katiestockdale at uvic.ca if you have any questions about my research.
