Rosemary Kellison, Ph.D.

Rosemary Kellison studies comparative religious ethics, with special expertise in ethics of war, feminist moral philosophy, and Christian and Islamic ethics. She teaches courses in various areas of the study of religion, as well as in feminist philosophy. Her recent book, Expanding Responsibility for the Just War: A Feminist Critique (Cambridge University Press, 2019), employs a feminist ethical approach to analyze how we do and do not assign and accept moral responsibility for causing harm to noncombatants in modern war.
