Julianne Chung is presently an associate professor of philosophy at York University. She was previously an assistant professor of philosophy at the University of Louisville and obtained her PhD from Yale University in December of 2015. Her primary areas of research are epistemology, philosophy of language, aesthetics, philosophy of religion, and philosophy of mind. She is especially intrigued by questions having to do with skepticism, fictionalism, and metaphor, as well as how cross-cultural philosophy can shed new light on them. She is also interested in whether (and how) works of art can have epistemic content and value, and what the philosophical upshots of this might be. She has published articles on related topics in a variety of journals and edited volumes, including Philosophical Studies, Midwest Studies in Philosophy, the Journal of Analytic Theology, Philosophy and Phenomenological Research, Philosophers' Imprint, and the Journal of Aesthetics and Art Criticism. In addition, she serves as associate editor of Oxford Studies in Epistemology and as a member of the editorial board for the Journal of Analytic Theology. She is also a member of the organizing committee for the Midwest Conference on Chinese Thought and Past President of the Canadian Society for Women in Philosophy. She has also served as President of the American Society for Aesthetics, Rocky Mountain Division and a member of the American Philosophical Association's committee on Asian and Asian-American Philosophers and Philosophies, and been involved with teaching philosophy to pre-college aged students (she taught an introductory logic and philosophy of science course that formed part of the Yale Pathways to Science Summer SCHOLAR Program).
