    Personal information

    Angela Roothaan, assistant professor

    My research focuses on Intercultural and African philosophy, criticism of modernity, spirituality, and spirit ontologies. Approaches I use are critical theory, postcolonial theory, hermeneutics, deconstructivism and pragmatism.  

    I supervise PhD students in Philosophy of Religion, Intercultural Philosophy and Ontology. From 2020 on I coordinate the Graduate Winter Course (VU) on Intercultural Philosophy and Postcolonial Theory. At the Master's level I teach Philosophy of Culture and Governance (from a perspective of Race Theory), at Bachelor's level I teach Diversifying Philosophy, Bachelor Thesis Seminar, and several courses for non-philosophy students. 

    Next to my research and teaching I aim to bring philosophy out of the ivory tower by writing a blog, giving lectures, and connecting to philosophers and philosophy students all over the world through social media.
