Liz Meade

Symposium Coordinator

Liz Meade holds a PhD in philosophy from Maynooth University during which time she was awarded a John and Pat Hume Scholarship from Maynooth University and the Matthew O’Donnell Scholarship from St. Patrick’s College, Maynooth. Her PhD dissertation, ‘The Question of Freedom in the Early Writings of Emmanuel Levinas’, investigated the justification of freedom understood as self-reflective critical consciousness in the early work of Levinas. She has taught philosophy in Maynooth University, Hibernia College, Dublin City University and on the Access Programme with NUIG. She has been the treasurer of IASPES (The International Association for the Study of the Philosophy of Edith Stein) since 2010. During that time, she has gained extensive experience, including finance management and organising a successful international conference. Liz is keenly interested in the application of philosophy and advocates for the wider availability of philosophy beyond the university.
