Dr. Evelien Geerts (she/they) is a multidisciplinary philosopher (Ph.D. University of California, Santa Cruz, USA) with a passion for political & environmental philosophy, critical theory, and critical pedagogies.
A Research Fellow (part of the ERC-funded Urban Terrorism in Europe (2004-19): Remembering, Imagining, and Anticipating Violence project, University of Birmingham, UK) and a Posthumanities Hub & Eco- and Bioart Lab Affiliated Researcher (Linköping University, SE), Geerts examines political philosophical questions of identity, difference, and violence; environmental philosophical questions surrounding the (post-)Anthropocene and times of crisis; and critical and diffractive pedagogies – and that all through critical posthumanist, new materialist, and Deleuzoguattarian perspectives. Their work has been published in Philosophy Today, Women’s Studies International Forum, Rhizomes: Cultural Studies in Emerging Knowledge, amongst others, and two monograph projects are currently in development: a project that investigates the implications of reconceptualizing violence as a complex agential realist phenomenon and one combining affect theory, digital post-Humanities, and critical new materialisms to better examine the socio-political impact of alt-right, terrorist, and fascist memes.
In addition to possessing plenty of managerial expertise (organizer of summer schools, such as the Kif Kif Gender & Superdiversity summer school; expert seminars; workshops; …) and editorial skills (editorial board member & editor of Humanities & Social Sciences Communications; former editorial board member & editor of Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies (2015-2020); (co-)editor of several special journal issues of Somatechnics, Journal of Digital Social Research, Tijdschrift voor Genderstudies, and Matter; …), Geerts is also committed to critical pedagogies-based teaching and the much-needed praxis of public philosophy.
