Dr. Evelien Geerts (she/they) is an interdisciplinary philosopher (Ph.D. University of California, Santa Cruz, USA) with a passion for political, feminist & 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; affiliated starting from June 2023), a Posthumanities Hub & Eco- and Bioart Lab Affiliated Researcher (Linköping University, SE), and Posthumanism Research Institute (Brock University, CA) Associate, Geerts examines political philosophical questions of identity, difference, violence, and democracy; environmental philosophical questions surrounding the (post-)Anthropocene and contemporary 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 CounterText, 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 (including a detailed glossary of agential realism) and one combining political philosophy, the Environmental Posthumanities, and (digital) cultural studies that examines the micropolitical power of alt-right memes.
In addition to possessing plenty of project 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.
