Tara Dankel is an Assistant Professor in Philosophy at the Singapore University of Technology and Design, joining the faculty in early 2015 after receiving her doctoral degree from Harvard University. Her dissertation, “To Become Again What We Never Were: Foucault and the Politics of Transformation,” outlines the understanding of the subject that emerges from the late work of philosopher Michel Foucault. She is particularly interested in his examination of philosophical conversion and how daily practice shapes human subjectivity and potential for ethical action. In general, her research is meta-ethical, asking how values form and change, and how people interact with their world in the development of ethical selves. Since coming to SUTD, her thinking has turned to issues of technology and urbanism. Her research interests range widely–from religious fundamentalism, to pop culture, to classical Cynic and Stoic thought, to the impending singularity. She spends most of her free time walking and reading.
