HANNA KIRI GUNN
I am an assistant professor in the Department of Cognitive and Information Sciences at UC Merced.
My research falls broadly within the area of "social philosophy" (social epistemology and feminist philosophy).
Some recent publications include: "Reflections on Boundary Work in Social Epistemology" (2020) at SERRC, "Has Googling Made Us Worse Listeners?" (2020), and "An Intellectually Humbling Experience: Changes in Interpersonal Perception and Cultural Reasoning across a Five-Week Course" (2019).
Works In Progress
A paper on gaslighting and relational autonomy
A paper on whose responsible for epistemic manipulation on online platforms
A paper on the idea of "extreme belief" and related concepts in polarisation research
And continuing various projects developing theories of both epistemic community and social-epistemic respect
Some pieces that will be published soon:
"Exclusion and Epistemic Community"
"How Should We Build Epistemic Community?"
"Filter Bubbles, Echo Chambers, and Online Community"
