Sara J. Bernstein


I am 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 Thomas J. and Robert T. Rolfs Professorship at the University of Notre Dame, the Andrew W. Mellon Assistant Professorship at Duke University.

I have also been an invited visitor at Arché at the University of St. Andrews, the Center for Philosophy of Time at the University of Milan, and 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.
