Amia Srinivasan

I am an associate professor of philosophy at the University of Oxford, and a tutorial fellow at St John’s College. Previously I was a (permanent) lecturer in the UCL Philosophy Department and a fellow of All Souls College, Oxford. 

I completed my DPhil in Philosophy at Oxford in 2014, under the supervision of John Hawthorne and Timothy Williamson; before that I did a BPhil in Philosophy, also at Oxford, and a BA in Philosophy at Yale. I work on topics in epistemology, metaphilosophy, social and political philosophy, and feminism, and am an associate editor of the philosophy journal Mind. I’ve recently been writing about externalist theories of epistemic justification and anger in politics. I’m currently writing a book about the genealogy of belief, entitled The Contingent World: Epistemology, Genealogy, Politics. The book project is supported by a Leverhulme Research Fellowship. I’m also interested in alternatives to liberalism and capitalism, the politics of sex and gender, 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. My book of feminist essays, THE RIGHT TO SEX, will be published by Bloomsbury (UK) and FSG (US).
