About Me

round Kat

I am a researcher and a lecturer with a background in philosophy and gender studies.

In February of 2017, I defended my PhD dissertation at Radboud University Nijmegen. My dissertation, entitled Travelling Truths: Sojourner Truth, Intersectionality and Feminist Scholarship, takes the iconic story of Sojourner Truth as an entry point to explore the emergence and development of intersectional feminist scholarship. Sojourner Truth was a 19th century abolitionist and women’s rights advocate, who became known for the speech ‘Ain’t I a Woman?’. In my research, I examine how the story of Sojourner Truth has been told and retold by feminist scholars in different times, places, and geopolitical contexts.

Currently, I am teaching at the Graduate Gender Programme at Utrecht University. In the past, I have taught at the Philosophy Department at the University of Amsterdam, and the Philosophy Department and Institute for Gender Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen.
