Professor Andrew specializes in feminist theory, ethics, social and political philosophy and is interested in fostering dialogue between continental and analytic feminists. Her current research is on the concepts of love and freedom as moral principles. She is working on a book that considers love and freedom as moral principles in conjunction with racial justice, the care/justice debate, and in the work of Simone de Beauvoir.
