Sara J. Bernstein


I am Thomas J. and Robert T. Rolfs Associate Professor of Philosophy at the University of Notre Dame.

Previously, I was Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Duke University.

I work mainly on the metaphysics of causation, and on related topics in ethics and the law. I have additional interests in the metaphysics of time and time travel, and in the metaphysics of feminist theory.

I have held the Philip L. Quinn Fellowship at the National Humanities Center, the Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professorship, been a visitor at Arché at the University of St. Andrews, and am a frequent visitor at the Australian National University.

I received my Ph.D in 2010 from the University of Arizona.

My graduate career had other temporal parts located at UNC-Chapel Hill, MIT and Australian National University. I did my undergraduate work at the University of Chicago.
