Anita L. Allen is Professor of Law and Philosophy at the University of Pennsylvania. She is a graduate of New College and served on its Board of Trustees. She earned her M.A. and Ph.D. in Philosophy from the University of Michigan and her J.D. from Harvard.

While at Princeton, she will work on a book tentatively entitled After Privacy: Preference Regulation in the Liberal State. The book will assess the role government should play in regulating privacy -- including secrecy, modesty and confidentiality -- through education, incentives, and prohibitions.

Criminal Justice and Human Rights in Mexico (2001). While at Princeton, he will complete a book on the role of history in American constitutional interpretation. He will also begin a new project addressing the democratic legitimacy of the international human rights movement.

At Princeton, he will work on a project about "Exit, Escape and Commitment in International Governance."

Her first book, Chasing the Wind: Regulating Air Pollution in the Common Law State (Princeton University Press, forthcoming), traces the continuity of the contemporary American air pollution regime with the regulatory tradition of the common law, in contrast to the civil law-inspired pollution control regimes of continental Europe. While at Princeton, she will write an article comparing the evolution of air pollution regulation in England and the United States. She will also continue her research on the influence of nuisance law on the treatment of air pollution "hotspots" under the Clean Air Act.

She has published many book chapters and articles, including "Placing the Adoptive Self" (in Nomos XLIV) and "Separating from Children" (in the Columbia Law Review).
