Biography

Professor Beeghly's primary research interests lie at the intersection of ethics, epistemology, political theory, and moral psychology.  In 2016-2017, she is the Philip L. Quinn fellow at the National Humanities Center.  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. 

During 2016-17, Professor Beeghly is organizing a series of interdisciplinary conferences around the topic of "bias in context" with Professor Jules Holroyd at the University of Sheffield and Alex Madva at Cal Poly, Pomona. The third of these events will be held at the University of Sheffield in January 2017, and the final conference will be held at the University of Utah in October 2017.  Please see conference websites for details about conference 3: http://biasincontext3.weebly.com/
