Itzel Garcia

Visiting Assistant Professor
Philosophy and Law
Location: Humanities 333
Office Hours:
Wed: 10:00 am - 11:00 am

My research and teaching interests are in political and legal philosophy, with a particular interest on how the two intersect with morality when applied to the topic of law enforcement. I am currently working on theorizing an account of police authority that conceptualizes it as primarily a kind of liability conferring normative power, and plan to write about the implications of my work for border enforcement agencies in the near future. 


In addition to teaching and research, I currently serve as the advisor for SFSU's Concentration in Philosophy and Law


Before coming to SFSU I earned my Ph.D. in philosophy at the University of California, Irvine and my B.A. at the University of California, Santa Barbara. For more, visit my personal website
