Bio

Erin M. Boyle is an English Lecturer at Auburn University at Montgomery where she teaches all levels of English composition. Prior to teaching composition, Erin worked as a tutor in the AUM Learning Center, where she gained valuable insights into the unique needs of the student population. These experiences ultimately led to her decision to complete the Master of Teaching Writing degree in Fall of 2019.

As a part of the English Composition Program, Erin has contributed to the development of a curriculum that focuses on reflection and teaching for transfer. One of Erin’s favorite parts of teaching composition is the opportunities she finds to learn alongside her students.

Outside of teaching, she enjoys writing poetry, crocheting, and spending time with her husband and four kids. She lives in Pike Road, Alabama, where she enjoys life in the country with her family.

Bio CV

I began working at AUM in 2010. Prior to that, I completed a Ph.D. in Philosophy at Saint Louis University, a M.A. in Philosophy from Western Michigan University, and a B.A. in Philosophy and Psychology from Greenville University.

My dissertation focused on 19th-century British philosophy of science. I was interested in debates among these philosophers concerning the role of experiment in the justification of scientific knowledge. Although my research focused in this area, my teaching experience at Saint Louis University focused broadly on applied ethics, the history of philosophy, and in philosophy of religion. Since coming to AUM, I have continued to teach courses in these areas. And my research interests have shifted to focus broadly on virtues and vices in both ethics and epistemology. I have written two books: A Virtue-Based Defense of Perinatal Hospice and Loving Samuel: Suffering, Dependence, and the Calling of Love, a philosophical and theological memoir on the life and death of his son. I’m currently working on a third book, under contract with Cambridge Elements series The Problems of God, tentatively titled Suffering, Virtue, and God.

In addition to my teaching and research within the Department of English and Philosophy, in 2017 I took on the role of coordinator of the Interdisciplinary Studies degree plan. In this role, I oversee all aspects of the program including advising students and teaching the Interdisciplinary Studies Capstone course.
