IRENE MARTÍNEZ MARÍN
Uppsala University (Sweden)
I am a philosopher at Uppsala University (Sweden), where I recently completed my PhD (Jan 2023). My main areas of interest are aesthetics, moral psychology and issues to do with reasons and rationality (esp. coherence requirements).
My dissertation, "Aesthetic Valuing and the Self", was supervised by Elisabeth Schellekens and Paisley Livingston.
In Spring 2022, I was 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 co-organize the Uppsala Higher Seminars in Aesthetics with Elisabeth Schellekens.
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 in The Skirt Chronicles.
