Dr Erin Beeghly


CHCI-ACLS Fellow January - May 2020


Research project: What’s wrong with stereotyping?


Erin Beeghly is Assistant Professor of Philosophy at the University of Utah. Her primary research interests lie at the intersection of ethics, epistemology, legal philosophy, and moral psychology. Her current book project, What's Wrong With Stereotyping? (under contract with Oxford University press), 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. In 2019-20, she is on research leave to complete her book manuscript thanks to generous fellowships from the National Endowment for the Humanities and the American Council of Learned Societies. She will be spending January to May 2020 in residence at IASH.
