Eliana Luxemburg-Peck


Eliana Luxemburg-Peck (formerly Peck) is a doctoral candidate in Philosophy at the Graduate Center, CUNY. Her research areas include ethics, feminist philosophy and social epistemology, and critical philosophy of race.

Eliana's work has been published in Social Epistemology (2023), Critical Philosophy of Race (2021), and Metaphilosophy (2017; with Ellen K. Feder); she is currently writing a dissertation on complicity. Eliana has been active in departmental service, having served on the Student Steering Committee, the Admissions Committee, and with Minorities and Philosophy (MAP). She is passionate about accessible, inclusive, and justice-oriented philosophy teaching. As of Fall 2023, she will have developed and taught eleven sections of five different courses, most of them at Baruch College (CUNY). Eliana holds a B.A. in Philosophy from American University (summa cum laude) and an M.A. in Philosophy from Vanderbilt University.
