Hasana Sharp earned her PhD from the Pennsylvania State University (2005) and a diplôme (pensionnaire scientifique étranger) from the Ecole Normale Supérieure des Lettres et Sciences Humaines (2004). Her research is in the history of political philosophy with a focus on Spinoza.  Her recent book examines the implications of Spinoza's denial of human exceptionalism for ethics and politics, with consideration of recent arguments in feminist and race theory.
