IRENE MARTÍNEZ MARÍN

Ph.D. Candidate in Aesthetics, Uppsala University (Sweden)

I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Aesthetics within the Philosophy Department at Uppsala University. I'm currently writing a doctoral dissertation entitled: The Place of Feeling in Aesthetic Rationality. My work has connections to the philosophy of emotions, value theory, and practical rationality. In 2019, I was awarded the Fabian Dorsch Essay prize by the European Society for Aesthetics.

Before moving to Sweden I worked as an art gallery assistant at ARTNUEVE. Prior to this, I completed a Masters in Art History and Visual Culture at Autonomous University of Madrid— in collaboration with the Museum Reina Sofía (2014)—, and a Philosophy degree at the University of Murcia (2013).

In Spring 2021, I will be a visiting researcher at the Philosophy Department of King's College London.

I am coordinator of the Nordic Network for Women in Aesthetics and co-organizer of the Uppsala Higher Seminars in Aesthetics.

I also like writing poetry and short stories. I was a shortlisted fiction author for the Alpine Writing Fellowship Prize (2020) with a story about forgiveness, herons, and Christmas traditions.
