Dr Sarah Drews Lucas
BA (University of Texas at Austin), MA (University of Sydney), PhD (University of Sydney)
My research is focused on developing models of feminist agency that enable political action. I am especially interested in identity formation, communication and communicability, and interrogating the boundaries of the political (especially asking after the necessary pre-political conditions for action). My area of expertise is feminist philosophy, but I am also interested in critical theory, contemporary political theory, continental philosophy, and human rights.

I was born and raised in Houston, Texas. My undergraduate degree is from the University of Texas at Austin, where I attended the prestigious Plan II Honours Program and specialised in Classics and Philosophy. After leaving Austin, I spent three years teaching in Doha, Qatar before moving to Sydney, Australia to pursue my MA and PhD in Philosophy under the supervision of Professor Moira Gatens. In 2016, I was awarded a doctorate for a dissertation on narrative agency and feminist theory. I was apppointed to a permanent lectureship in Political Theory at Exeter in 2017.
