Dr Jane Mulderrig

Dr Stella Villarmea

I am Professor of Philosophy at the University of Alcalá, Madrid, Spain, where I teach ‘Theory of Knowledge’, ‘Philosophy, Gender, and Emancipation’, and ‘Contemporary Thinkers’. I have been awarded a Marie S. Curie Fellowship by the European Research Council (ERC) to conduct the research, ‘Controversies in Childbirth: from Epistemology to Practices’ (VOICEs), at the University of Oxford, 2018-20. I am the Principal Investigator of ‘Philosophy of Birth: rethinking the Origin from Medical Humanities (PHILBIRTH), a research project funded by the Ministry of Economy of Spain. I am interested in the moral and political justification of our beliefs, and in the relationship between knowledge and emancipatory action. I am currently doing research on the Philosophy of Birth and how our concepts of pregnancy and childbirth reflect our view of the world and of human being. I have previously published on epistemology (Wittgenstein and skepticism) and ethics (Kant and Levinas), with and/or without a gender approach. I have been Adjunct Professor at University of Saint Louis and Visiting Professor at Universities like Humboldt and Paderborn (Germany), Lund (Sweden), Marie Curie (Poland), Kent and Oxford (United Kingdom). I have been the Head Coordinator of the Degree of Humanities, and its Coordinator of International Programs, at University of Alcalá. I am co-Speaker of The International Association of Women Philosophers (IAPh) and member of the board of The Spanish Network of Philosophy (REF).

Postgraduates

Our centre not only brings together academic members of the community, it also fosters an environment for our postgraduate students to get involved and be part of the network. At The University of Sheffield we are proud of our reputation as one of the most active centres for research in Britain.
