Dr Daisy Dixon



Subject areas



Before coming to Cambridge to study for an MPhil and then a PhD in philosophy, Daisy completed an undergraduate joint honours degree in fine art and philosophy at the University of Reading. Her philosophical work is primarily in the philosophy of art, focusing on the nature of artistic meaning, arguing that visual artworks can perform speech acts and can develop in meaning over time. Her next project will concern dangerous art and the moral responsibilities of artists and curators in the artworld. Daisy also has interests in Feminist Philosophy and Philosophy of Language.

Outside of research, Daisy tries to find time for her art practice in sound and installation. For her artwork see: daisydixon.co.uk
