Dr Teresa Bejan will be presenting her paper, 'What was the point of equality?' at this KJuris Workshop.
The King's Legal Philosophy Workshop, directed by Professor Lorenzo Zucca and Dr Ori Herstein is a forum devoted to discussing works in progress by today's leading legal philosophers and theorists as well as by promising younger talents from around the world. While our focus is philosophical and jurisprudential, we construe these terms broadly and welcome all rigorous methodological approaches to legal theory.
Anyone with a keen interest in Legal Philosophy is welcome, yet potential attendees should bear in mind that we prefer to commence substantive conversation as quickly as possible and do not allow for much by way of presentation from the guest. Taking a look at the paper in advance is, therefore, advisable.
Before coming to Oxford, Dr Bejan taught at the University of Toronto and as a Mellon Research Fellow in the Society of Fellows at Columbia University.
She received her Ph.D. with distinction from Yale University in 2013. She is the recipient of the American Political Science Association's 2015 Leo Strauss Award for the best doctoral dissertation in political philosophy. In 2016, she was elected as the final Balzan-Skinner Fellow in Modern Intellectual History at the University of Cambridge
