Hannah R. Bacon, Ph.D., is the Ferraro Fellow in Prison Education and a Visiting Professor of Public Philosophy at Marymount Manhattan College. Her research takes place at the intersection of social and political philosophy, 19th and 20th century continental philosophy, critical phenomenology of race, gender, and embodiment, carceral theory, and care and social ethics. Dr. Bacon holds a Ph.D. from SUNY Stony Brook and a master’s degree from The New School.
At MMC, Bacon teaches classes at MMC’s Manhattan campus, as well as MMC’s two Prison Education programs at the Bedford Hills and Taconic correctional facilities. The aim of the post-doctoral fellowship is to build bridges between these campuses and higher education communities. Prison education is a crucial register of MMC’s educational identity and of Dr. Bacon’s work as a professor and philosophical thinker.
