IRENE MARTÍNEZ MARÍN

Uppsala University (Sweden)

I am a doctoral student in Philosophy at Uppsala University (Sweden), specializing in Aesthetics and the philosophy of emotions.

My work has connections to the objectivity and subjectivity of aesthetic judgements, emotional justification, moral psychology (esp. akrasia) and structural rationality.

In Spring 2022, I will be a visiting researcher at the Philosophy Department of King's College London.

In 2019, I was awarded the Fabian Dorsch Essay Prize from the European Society for Aesthetics. In 2021, I received the Irene Chayes New Voices Award, organized by the American Society for Aesthetics.

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

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

I also enjoy writing poetry and short stories. I was shortlisted for the Alpine Writing Fellowship (2020) and awarded the CreaJoven Poetry prize (2008). I have a poem about the many times I've fallen on ice forthcoming at The Skirt Chronicles.
