Professor Beeghly's primary research interests lie at the intersection of ethics, epistemology, political theory, and moral psychology. Her current book project--What's Wrong With Stereotyping?--examines the conditions under which judging people by group membership is wrong. She also writes and teaches about topics within legal theory, including discrimination law. Beeghly's research has been supported by the American Association for University Women, the NEH, ACLS, and the National Humanities Center.
