Dr. Joseph Stramondo is an assistant professor of philosophy and associate director of the Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs at San Diego State University. He holds advanced degrees in both philosophy (PhD, 2015, Michigan State University) and public policy studies (MA, 2007, Trinity College, Hartford).
His teaching and research interests focus primarily on the intersection of philosophy of disability and bioethics. More specifically, he has written more than twenty scholarly articles and book chapters on topics ranging from informed consent procedures to physician assisted suicide to reproductive ethics to assistive neurotechnology.
His current research is devoted to developing two book manuscripts. The first is under contract with Routledge and will address the ways in which the field of bioethics fails to address the moral salience of the social categories of gender, race, disability, and sexuality. The second will offer a systematic, if limited, defense of the permissibility of using reproductive technology to choose to have a disabled child. In addition to his academic career, Joe has a long track record of involvement with disability activist organizations like ADAPT, LPA, DREDF, Disability Rights Texas, and the CT SILC. When Dr Stramondo isn’t working, you will find him spending time with his partner, two kids, and their canine companion ‘Odysseus.’
