Renee Conroy joined the Department of English and Philosophy in Fall 2009.
Her primary research interests are in aesthetics and the philosophy of art,
and her published work is predominantly focused on issues related to dance
and human movement performance. Her secondary research interests within the
field of aesthetics include such topics as the ontology of fiction, the
cognitive value of literature, the aesthetic appreciation of nature, and the
places of intersection between ethical and aesthetic values. Her
philosophical interests outside aesthetics center on issues in ethical
theory and contemporary metaphysics.
