Amy Donahue is Associate Professor of Philosophy at Kennesaw State University. She holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa, with areas of specialization in Indian Philosophy, Feminist Philosophy, Epistemology, and Philosophy of Language. 

Her recent scholarship has focused on cross-cultural philosophical methodologies, decolonial and postcolonial theories, and Buddhist philosophies of language, and has appeared in Philosophy East and West and Continental and Comparative Philosophy. She serves as Associate Editor of Journal of World Philosophies (Indiana Univ. Press) and on the boards of the Society for Asian and Comparative Philosophy (SACP) and the Society for Teaching Comparative Philosophy (STCP). Her current research explores contemporary applications of vāda and nyāya to public discourse, and conceptions of ‘philosophy' that are fit for a culturally polycentric world.

Her regular rotation of courses at Kennesaw State includes Major Themes in Philosophy (PHIL 4460), Indian Philosophy (PHIL 4200), Asian Philosophy (PHIL 3200), Feminist Philosophy (PHIL 3130), Logic (PHIL 2500), Ways of Knowing (PHIL 2200), and the Senior Seminar (PHIL 4499).
