Keynote Speaker

Regina Rini
Associate Professor, York University
Canada Research Chair in Philosophy of Moral and Social Cognition

Professor Rini teaches and writes on a number of topics at the intersection of normative theory and social science. Their previously published research is mostly about the relevance of cognitive science to moral theory. Currently, they are working on new projects related to the ethics of microaggression, the relationship between moral disagreement and moral agency, and the role of partisanship in political epistemology. Before coming to York in 2017, they were Assistant Professor of Bioethics at NYU. Before that, they held a postdoc in Moral Cognition at Oxford University.

Research Interests: Ethics, Psychology, Moral Cognition, Social Epistemology, Philosophy
