Spring 2024 Scholar-in-Residence
Humanities Center

Adriel M. Trott is the Andrew T. and Anne Ford Chair in the Liberal Arts, and Professor of Philosophy. Her work focuses on ancient, continental and political philosophy, specifically on how ancient philosophy can be a resource both for analyzing and criticizing contemporary conceptions of political life, of being human, of nature and of gender and for presenting alternatives to these accounts. Trott is the author of Aristotle on the Nature of Community and Aristotle on the Matter of Form: A Feminist Metaphysics of Generation.

Trott teaches courses that engage students from classics, gender studies, Black studies and PPE. She serves on the Executive Committee of the Society for Phenomenology and Existential Philosophy (SPEP), the largest continental philosophy society in North America, and is the Editor of the Women in Philosophy series at the American Philosophical Association (APA) Blog. She blogs at The Trott Line and is an honorary member of the Malcolm X Institute for Black Studies at Wabash.
