About Me


Hello! My name is Rowan Bell. I am an Assistant Professor in Philosophy and Sexualities, Genders, and Social Change at the University of Guelph. I received my PhD in Philosophy from Syracuse University in July 2022.


I primarily work in trans feminist philosophy, metaethics, and social epistemology. My research is grounded in the analytic tradition in philosophy, but also draws from sociology, trans studies, critical race theory, and decolonial theory. I study gender norms, identity, and social construction.


I currently live in Guelph, Ontario, with my spouse, Justin, and our cat, Zoya. In my spare time, I like to knit, run, climb rocks, ride my road bike, and enjoy good sci-fi and fantasy.


I use they/them or he/him pronouns.
