Laura Wildemann Kane is a third year doctoral student 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 and political philosophy; specifically, how constraints on individuals within the traditionally defined private realm hinder their ability to fully participate as political actors. She is also interested in the social and political implications of technology; specifically, what role social media technologies play in defining and re-defining the private and public realms of society.
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. She currently teaches at Hunter College of the City University of New York, and is an At-Large Representative for the Doctoral Students’ Council at the Graduate Center.
