Nancy Tuana is DuPont/Class of 1949 Professor of Philosophy and Women's, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Penn State University and was the founding director of the Penn State Rock Ethics Institute. Dr. Tuana’s overarching area of expertise is feminist philosophy with a twofold emphasis: i) theoretical approaches to liberatory thought including standpoint theory, intersectionality, and anti-colonial theory and ii) the question of how to develop effective coalitional work among different theoretical frames such as Black feminisms, Indigenous feminisms, Latina/x feminisms, Asian American feminisms, trans theory, as well as attention to issues of class, dis/abilities, and environmental justice. She also works in the field of philosophy of science. A key emphasis of her recent research involves the field of climate and environmental philosophy. Her most recent book. Racial Climates, Ecological Indifference: An Ecointersectional Approach (Oxford University Press, 2023), focuses on the infusions of systemic racisms and climate injustice. Tuana has expertise in working as a member of scientific teams to address issues of adaptation to climate impacts that are attentive to the values and lifeways of those impacted. She is currently a member of the NSF grant Megalopolitan Coastal Transformation Hub (MACH) https://coastalhub.org/ which is developing a climate-resilient decision-making framework that will support coastal communities in the New York City-New Jersey-Philadelphia region and beyond as they navigate a deeply uncertain future. Her work contributes to MACH's commitment to the authentic integration of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion into its practices.
