Erin Beeghly is an 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 OUP), 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 2016-2017, she was the Philip L. Quinn fellow at the National Humanities Center. Her work has also been supported by the American Association for University of Women and the Townsend Center for the Humanities at Berkeley. In 2019-20, she will be 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. During spring 2020, Professor Beeghly will be a CHCI-ACLS fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities at the University of Edinburgh.
Professor Beeghly received her PhD from UC Berkeley in 2014, where she worked with Véronique Munoz-Dardé, R.Jay Wallace, and Victoria Plaut. Before that, she earned two BAs, one in History from UC Berkeley in 2004 and one in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics from Oxford University in 2006.
