Edith Gwendolyn Nally is an Associate Professor of Philosophy and affiliated faculty in the Classics Program and the Race, Ethnic, and Gender Studies Department at the University of Missouri, Kansas City. 

Her research focuses on ancient Greek and Roman philosophy, epistemology, the philosophy of love, sex, and gender, and feminist philosophy. She also has significant interests in the philosophy of race (especially in Greco-Roman sources), reproductive ethics, and the philosophy of technology.

She recently published a coedited volume, Believing Ancient Women: Feminist Epistemologies for Greece and Rome, which deploys feminist epistemological frameworks to critically reinterpret Greek and Roman literary, philosophical, and material sources. 

She is currently hard at work on a book called Plato's Ethics of Care, which reinterprets the erotic dialogues through the lens of contemporary care-ethical movements, and a co-authored book (along with Mary Hamil Gilbert), titled 'She Is My City:' Hecuba's Politics of Care, which looks to ancient, renaissance, and contemporary stagings of Hecuba for insights about the political dimensions of motherhood and caregiving.

Her opinion writing has been featured in the New York Times and the Philosophical Salon (LA Review of Books).
