Julia Langkau

I am a lecturer in philosophy at the University of Flensburg (Germany). Until February 2020, I was an SNSF Ambizione Fellow in philosophy at the University of Fribourg (Switzerland) and member of the research group The Aesthetic Mind. I received my masters degree in philosophy, linguistics and psychology from the University of Zurich (Switzerland) and my PhD degree from the University of St Andrews (Scotland), where I was a student in the Philosophical Methodology project at the Arché Research Centre for Logic, Language, Metaphysics and Epistemology. I was a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Zürich and the University of Konstanz. From August 2017 to April 2018, I was a Visiting Research Fellow at the University of Miami (USA). I am currently working on a book concerning the nature, structure and epistemic value of our experience of literary fiction. I am also teaching at CODE University of Applied Sciences in Berlin (Germany).

In 2021, I received an SNSF PRIMA grant for my project Creativity, Imagination and Tradition. I'll start working on this project at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) in February 2022, together with Patrik Engisch.
