Biography

Hello,

I am Dr. Agnès Berthelot-Raffard. I received my Ph.D. from the Université Panthéon-Sorbonne and the University of Montreal in 2013. My areas of specialization are Political Philosophy (social ethics) and Feminist Ethics. My doctoral dissertation highlights gender justice in families and examines the invisible work of caregiving. My areas of competences are political philosophy, social ethics, ethics of knowledge, feminist philosophy, philosophy of race, Africana philosophy, and philosophy of education.

Although I am passionate about these fields of studies, my experience and interests are not limited to them. Indeed, I also have an interest in bioethics and, ethics of Public Health.

I am the founder of the Black Students’ Mental Health Project-BSMHP a non-profit organization dedicated to the social innovation for equity in Canadian universities and applied research about the connections between mental health and race.

In addition to this commitment, I am particularly proud to have created the first and only accredited university course in the francophone world devoted entirely to Black Feminist thought (UQAM in Montreal, Quebec).  

I define myself as a multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary researcher because of my many fields of university training. So browse through this website to find out more about my work and myself, and stay tuned for more news and updates.
