Julie Maybee

Julie E. Maybee (B.J., B.A., Carleton University; M.A., Ph.D., Cornell University) is Professor of Philosophy and the director of the interdisciplinary Disability Studies Program at Lehman College. She also teaches in the Disability Studies Masters Program for CUNY's School of Professional Studies. Her research areas include 19th century Continental philosophy, particularly the work of G. W. F. Hegel, African philosophy, race and philosophy, and Disability Studies. What unites her specialties is an overriding interest in the way socially defined differences as well as time and place shape people’s identities, knowledge and experiences. Prof. Maybee is currently finishing a book on Hegel’s Phenomenology of Spirit as well as a book on disability and embodiment.
