Amanda Roth 
Assistant Professor 
Philosophy and Women's & Gender Studies
SUNY Geneseo 


contact: rothal@geneseo.edu

My main academic interests include moral & political philosophy, feminist philosophy, bioethics, and gender & sexuality. I regularly teach courses on ethics, political philosophy, bioethics, introduction to women's and gender studies, gender & sexuality, feminist theory. I have also taught special topics courses on mass incarceration, abortion, pornography, and family & reproductive ethics. Many of my teaching areas map on to past and current research interests. I have previously published on making sense of ethical progress and ethical objectivity as a pragmatist, gender and Kantian respect, and 
 sports and theories of feminism. My more recent projects focus on abortion, pregnancy loss, reproductive technology, and queer families.

I have been at Geneseo since 2014. Prior to that, I was an Instructor at Bowling Green State University and a Postdoc at the Center for Ethics in Public Life and Ford School of Public Policy at the University of Michigan. Before that, I earned my Ph.D. in Philosophy at the University of Michigan, Ann Arbor where I also worked with the Center for Research on Learning and Teaching as a Graduate Teaching Consultant.

As an undergraduate I attended Lafayette College where I majored in philosophy and women's studies. At Lafayette I wrote my senior thesis on egalitarianism and worked on an oral history project with the College Archives documenting Lafayette's transition to coeducation.
