Laura Ruth Lenhart

Assistant Professor, Career Track

Laura received her PhD from the University of Arizona in the spring of 2014. Her dissertation "Pluralism and Context: Intellectual Property and the Social Understandings of Intellectual Goods," employed normative cultural analysis, particularly ethics and epistemology, to shed light on strategies for restructuring intellectual property schemas. Her research interests include trolling and epistemology, the ethics of big data, and digital public discourse. 

In her free time, she enjoys gardening, running with her two dogs, cooking, and listening to podcasts and audiobooks. She loves to dance in the kitchen with her young son and strives to live low key like seashells.
