Taylor Rogers

PhD in Philosophy (2021) | Certificate in GSS

Taylor Rogers is a decolonial feminist from Chicago and is currently an Instructor in Philosophy at Loyola University Chicago. After years of pursuing her academic and singer-songwriter careers separately, her latest project finds a newfound path of integration. "NOA: A Music Film" (out May 28, 2021 in collaboration with Lillian Walker) functions as the last chapter of her dissertation at Northwestern University, which explores the emotional numbness at the heart of oppressive structures. Taylor has released three full-length albums to date, and has toured all over the US, performing in various Midwest festivals such as Oberlin FolkFest ad BAMfest. She has spoken at numerous universities including Brown, UCLA, Colombia, and others, and she has published in leading philosophical journals like Hypatia. All of her work is inspired by themes of connection, of presence, and of embracing the depth of our emotional lives so necessary for collective healing.
