Stephanie Jenkins received her BA in Philosophy at Emory University in 2003, her MA in Philosophy from Pennsylvania State University in 2007 and her dual Ph.D. in Philosophy and Women's Studies from Pennsylvania State University in 2012. Her dissertation, Disabling Ethics: A Genealogy of Ability, argues for a genealogy-based ethics that departs from traditional bioethical approaches to disability. Her research and teaching interests include 20th century continental philosophy (especially French), feminist philosophy, disability studies, critical animal studies, and ethics. In her spare time, she enjoys spending time outdoors (hiking, biking, and running), baking, and listening to live music.
