Agnes Tam (2020-21)
PhD in Philosophy
Agnes Tam received her PhD in Philosophy at Queen's University under the supervision of Will Kymlicka. Her doctoral thesis, Norms, Reasons, and Moral Progress, explored how partial and conformist group reasoning under appropriate conditions facilitates rather than obstructs moral progress. Her current research project, “Rethinking Democracy in the Populist Age,” explores the role of group belonging in populism.
Dr. Tam also holds a Bachelor's degree in Law from the University of Hong Kong and a Master's degree in Political Theory from the London School of Economics. She has recently published articles in the Journal of Political Philosophy and Analyse & Kritik.
