Louise Antony

UMass Amherst

Professor Antony's work focuses on how mentality can be realized in a physical world, taking a naturalistic approach to issues in epistemology, the philosophy of mind, and feminist theory. She has argued-somewhat paradoxically-that bias is not inherently bad; it plays a constructive role in human epistemic and emotional life.

Lily Hu

Yale University

Professor Hu's work broadly concerns causal theorizing about the social world, with a particular focus on causal inference methodologies in the social sciences, how these various statistical frameworks treat and measure the “causal effect” of social categories such as race, and how such methods are seen to back normative claims about racial discrimination and inequalities broadly.
