Briana Toole is a philosopher and post-doctoral fellow in the Department of Philosophy at Baruch College, CUNY. She works at the intersection of epistemology, feminist theory, and the philosophy of race and gender. Toole is interested primarily in examining the relationship between social identity and knowledge, focusing in particular on how standpoint epistemology can be used to better understand epistemic oppression. Her research is largely inspired by her experiences as a biracial teenager growing up in the Florida panhandle. These experiences led her to found the philosophy outreach program Corrupt the Youth, which aims to bring philosophy to populations that traditionally lack access to it. She has written on issues relating to diversity and philosophy in the Times Higher Education, and her research has been featured on the Examining Ethics podcast.
