Emily Filler

Chair and Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies at Earlham College
Emily is Chair and Assistant Professor of Jewish Studies at Earlham College, Indiana, where she teaches modern philosophy and ethics alongside Jewish text. A PhD from the University of Virginia, she is particularly interested in the possibility that ‘troubling texts’ — violent or otherwise ethically challenging passages — can be good philosophical, ethical and political tools. She is co-editor of the Journal of Jewish Ethics and directs the Sacred Texts and Ethics Group at the American Academy of Religion.
