IRENE MARTÍNEZ MARÍN

Ph.D. Candidate in Aesthetics, Uppsala University

I'm a Ph.D. candidate in Aesthetics within the Philosophy Department at Uppsala University (since November 2016). Where I'm currently writing a doctoral dissertation entitled: The Place of Feeling in Aesthetic Rationality. My work has connections to the philosophy of emotions, epistemology, value theory, and practical rationality.

Before moving to Sweden I worked as an art gallery assistant at ARTNUEVE. Previously, I completed a M.A in History of Contemporary Art with a concentration in Art Criticism 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 research student at 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 short stories. I was a shortlisted fiction author for the Alpine Writing Fellowship Prize (2020) with a story about forgiveness, herons, and Christmas traditions.
