A Bit About Me

My name is Rebeccah Leiby (rhymes with 'lime tree') and I'm a Lecturer at the University of Baltimore. I'm also the inaugural Hoffberger Ethics Fellow at the University of Baltimore's Hoffberger Center for Ethical Engagement (previously the Hoffberger Center for Professional Ethics), where I've had the pleasure and privilege of leading a redesign of UBalt's universal ethics curriculum. I received my Ph.D. in Philosophy in 2022 from Boston University. In Fall 2023, I will be joining the faculty of Elon University as an Assistant Professor of Philosophy.

I work primarily on political philosophy and ethics. My current research focuses on issues surrounding ethical obligation within the context of transitional justice (and the aftermath of significant moral breaches more generally). When I'm not doing philosophy, I enjoy cooking and baking, hugging every cat within catching distance, consuming truly irresponsible amounts of science fiction, and playing video games that involve farming and/or being stealthy.
