Amia Srinivasan

I am an associate professor of philosophy at St John’s College, Oxford. From January 2020 I will be the Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory at All Souls College, Oxford. Previously I was a lecturer in philosophy at University College London.

I completed my DPhil in Philosophy at Oxford. Before that I did a BPhil in Philosophy, also at Oxford, and a BA in Philosophy at Yale. I work on topics in political philosophy, epistemology, the history and philosophy of feminism, and metaphilosophy. I am an associate editor of the philosophy journal MIND. I’ve recently been writing about anger in politics, political epistemology, no platforming, and the ethics of pedagogy. I’m currently writing two books. The first is about the practice of critical genealogy, entitled The Contingent World: Genealogy, Epistemology, Politics. The second is a set of feminist essays entitled On Sex (forthcoming with Bloomsbury in the UK and FSG in the US). I’m also interested in alternatives to liberalism and capitalism, the philosophy of history, and animals.

I’m a contributing editor of the London Review of Books. My writing for a public audience -- on sex, animals, death, the university, technology, anger, politics and other topics -- has also appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Review of Books, Harper’s, the Times Literary Supplement, The Nation, The New York Times and TANK.
