Diana Tietjens Meyers is Ellacuría Chair and Professor of Philosophy at Loyola University, Chicago. In Spring 2003, she was the Laurie Chair in Women’s and Gender Studies at Rutgers University. She works in three main areas of philosophy: philosophy of action, feminist ethics, and human rights theory. Her monographs are Inalienable Rights: A Defense (1985, Columbia University Press), Self, Society, and Personal Choice (1989, Columbia University Press), Subjection and Subjectivity: Psychoanalytic Feminism and Moral Philosophy (1994, Routledge), and Gender in the Mirror: Cultural Imagery and Women’s Agency (2002, Oxford University Press; also available through Oxford Scholarship Online). Her several co-authored and edited books include Being Yourself: Essays on Identity, Action and Social Life (2004, Rowman and Littlefield), which is a collection of her (mostly) previously published essays. Among her many articles and book chapters is her recent “Artifice and Authenticity: Gender Technology and Agency in Two Jenny Saville Portraits,” in Laurie Shrage (Ed.), "You’ve Changed”: Sex Reassignment and Personal Identity (2009, Oxford University Press). 

Professor Meyers is currently writing on three topics: victims’ stories and human rights, art and politics, and psychocorporeal identity and agency.
