This is the web site of Aili Bresnahan, JD, PhD.

This site contains information on my background and research, a curriculum vitae, and references related to my current areas of interest, which include the philosophy of art (particularly dance and performance), music, theatre, literature, film, the philosophy of law, mind, ethics, and culture, particularly where these areas intersect with the philosophy of art.

Currently, I hold the positions of Associate Professor in the Department of Philosophy and Humanities Commons Coordinator at the University of Dayton in Ohio. For the academic year 2020-2021 I will be a Fulbright Research Scholar at the Centre for Dance Research at Roehampton University in London, UK.

I am also Aesthetics Editor for The Philosophers' Magazine and the founder and moderator of DancePhilosophers, an informal, networking and resource-sharing Google group that includes philosophers, dance studies scholars, dance historians, critics, performers, choreographers, students, and others who are interested in dance philosophy broadly construed.
