Amy Schiller

Amy Schiller researches, writes, and consults at the intersection of political theory and philanthropy. She is currently an Associate Fellow at the Hannah Arendt Center at Bard College. Her research applies Hannah Arendt and other theorists to contemporary philanthropic practices and discourses to uncover ways in which philanthropy creates and destroys the common world. Alongside her philanthropy commentary, Dr. Schiller’s teaching and her writing for The AtlanticThe Nation, The American Prospect, and The Daily Beast have addressed matters of race, gender, popular culture, and electoral politics. She holds a Ph.D. from CUNY Graduate Center and has taught at Brooklyn College and the Brooklyn Institute for Social Research.
