Curriculum Vitae (CV)

Professor Justin Clardy's research focuses on normative questions that arise within the contexts of interpersonal relationships and political theories. Within that context, he has special interests in questions about social justice and emotions such as love, sympathy, compassion, and tenderness. Professor Clardy holds a Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Arkansas and his recent publications, including his debut book Why It's Ok to Not Be Monogamous, have investigated the intersection of love & race, and have largely focused on both the ethicality of non-monogamous relationship styles and the unjust political consequences for non-monogamists. He enjoys teaching courses in philosophy of race, ethics, and the philosophy of emotions.
