Amia Srinivasan

I’m a lecturer (assistant professor) in the UCL Philosophy Department and a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. I work on topics in epistemology, metaphilosophy, social and political philosophy, and feminism. My dissertation was on the limits of knowledge, and what these limits imply for our ethical and philosophical ambitions. I’ve recently been writing about externalist theories of epistemic justification, and anger in politics. I’m currently writing a book about the genealogical contingency of belief, supported by a Leverhulme Research Fellowship. I’m also interested in alternatives to liberalism and capitalism, the politics of sex and gender, and animals.

I’m an associate editor of the philosophy journal Mind.

My writing has appeared in the London Review of Books, Harper’s, the Times Literary Supplement, The Nation, The New York Times and TANK.
