Ronni Gura Sadovsky, J.D./Ph.D.
- Assistant Professor , Philosophy
My research investigates the moral reasons that we have to conform with or to violate informal social norms. I focus particularly on a category of norms I call political etiquette, conformity with which idiomatically expresses respect for an entire social group rather than for particular individuals. Before joining the faculty at Trinity, I have taught courses in political philosophy, philosophy of law, philosophy of race, negotiation, and the ethics of artificial intelligence.
I grew up in a bilingual/bicultural family in St. Louis, and I now have a bilingual/bicultural family of my own in San Antonio. I love knitting, backpacking, and cultivating strong opinions about children's books.
I have worked as an attorney with Harvard Defenders, an instructor in Cambridge's ThinkerAnalytix and Philosophy for Kids programs, and a volunteer for Speaking in the Square's antiracist interventions in Jerusalem.
