Biography

Marieke Borren

Marieke Borren teaches philosophical anthropology, political philosophy, legal philosophy, philosophy of culture, and gender studies at the Univer- sities of Nijmegen, Groningen and Amsterdam. Her expertise lies in the areas of political philosophy, feminist theory, and philosophical anthro- pology. Her research focuses on political phenomenology, a perspective she developed in her dissertation, Amor Mundi. Hannah Arendt's Political Phenomenology of World (University of Amsterdam, 2010). She applied political phenomenology to contemporary cases, such as debates on na- tional identity, irregular migrants, social movements and identity politics. Her present research further develops political phenomenology, by inves- tigating the fundamental conditions of civic engagement and disengage- ment.
