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 at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) in February 2022.
