Lucas A. Keefer, Ph.D.

Hi! I'm currently an Assistant Professor at the University of Southern Mississippi. I finished my Ph.D. at the University of Kansas in 2014 and worked for two years as a Research Fellow at the University of Dayton. In a prior academic life, I also completed an M.A. in Philosophy at Georgia State University. Most of my research stands at the intersection of my interests in social psychology, continental philosophy, and psychoanalysis.

I am currently an Associate Editor for the Journal of Social and Political Psychology.

For more information on research interests, see Publications or Current Projects.
