Jules Salomone-Sehr

Postes occupés

2020-2021 à 2022-2023 Chercheur-se postdoctoral-e,


I am a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Centre de Recherche en Éthique where I am affiliated with McGill University and supervised by Amandine Catala (UQAM) and Natalie Stoljar (McGill). Previously, I was a philosophy doctoral candidate at The Graduate Center (City University of New York) and the Institut Jean Nicod (École Normale Supérieure), working under the supervision of Miranda Fricker and Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde. A former student at the École Normale Supérieure, I hold a Masters in Philosophy from the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne and a Masters in Economics from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (EHESS).

I work primarily in ethics, philosophy of action, and social philosophy. In my doctoral dissertation, I have written about shared agency, cooperation, and cooperativeness. I am now pursuing two research projects that build on my doctoral dissertation. On the one hand, I am bringing my doctoral research to bear on the nature and normative evaluation of complicit behavior, with a particular attention given to complicity with social oppression and structural injustices. On the other hand, I am exploring how agents respond to situations where they have no choice but to do things they’d rather not do—that is, situations where agency is a burden.

My work has appeared in Ethics, Routledge, and the Presses Universitaires de France. I am also the producer of We The Pupils, a racial and social justice podcast produced in the classroom at Hunter College (CUNY).
