Jennifer Saul is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Sheffield in the UK (http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/philosophy). She is the author of 3 books from Oxford University Press, and she co-edited (with Michael Brownstein) the recently published two volumes on Implicit Bias and Philosophy. Her current research is on political speech, with a special focus on racist and sexist political manipulation. She is Director of the Society of Women in Philosophy UK and she was 2011 Distinguished Woman in Philosophy, but her proudest accomplishment remains consulting on a zombie movie script.
She is originally from Toledo, Ohio but she has lived in Sheffield for 22 years. She loves this beautiful leafy city and its people, and she is horrified by what the council is doing to both the trees and local democracy.
