While at LAPA
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. A nationally-known expert on the law and ethics of privacy, Allen is the author of Why Privacy Isn't Everything: Feminist Reflections on Accountability in Private Life (2003) and Privacy Law: Cases and Materials (2 ed. 2002) (with R. Turkington). She has authored more than seventy articles and is widely recognized for her scholarship in the areas of jurisprudence, legal philosophy, law and literature, women's rights, and race relations. 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.
