KIE alum awarded prestigious Princeton fellowship

The University Center for Human Values (UCHV) at Princeton University has announced that Dr. Amy Sepinwall, KIE alumna, is among its Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Fellows for the 2017-18 academic year.

Described by UCHV leadership as “a hallmark of the Center,” the Laurance S. Rockefeller Visiting Fellowship program supports visitors in diverse academic areas for one year in residence at Princeton to research and write about topics involving human values in public and private life.

Dr. Sepinwall is James G. Campbell, Jr. Assistant Professor in the Department of Legal Studies and Business Ethics at Wharton, University of Pennsylvania. In addition to a Ph.D. from Georgetown in Philosophy, she holds a B.A. with First Class Honors from McGill University, where she also earned a Master’s degree in Bioethics, as well as a J.D. from Yale Law School.

Sepinwall has two main research areas, one interrogating the notion of corporate constitutional rights and the other calling for an expansion of the conceptions of responsibility standardly advanced in law and ethics. At Princeton, she will work to trace and critique notions of “taint,” or complicity, across different areas of law.
