Hi! I am Viktoria, an early-career philosopher at Technische Universität Dresden, Germany.
My research focuses on topics in metaphilosophy and the philosophy of language. I am also interested in feminist philosophy and am an active member of SWIP Germany.
I have recently published papers on merely verbal disputes and metalinguistic negotiations. You can find my research here and on my PhilPeople account. In my book, which is based on my PhD thesis, I develop a deflationist view on personal identity. (Hope to finally publish the book next year.)
I took up my position as a lecturer ("wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin") in Dresden after finishing my PhD at Universität Hamburg in autumn 2020. Before coming to Dresden, I was a lecturer at Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universität Bonn. I also spent some time abroad visiting ConceptLab (Oslo) in August/September 2019 and Arché (St. Andrews) in April 2022.
Apart from doing philosophy, I love wine, whiskey and vegan cooking. I also enjoy reading and gardening, and I care a lot about animal rights.
My partner Moritz is a philosopher as well; you can check him out here.
[AWARD] Very happy to announce that I will receive one of this year's teaching awards of the faculty of arts, humanities and social science at TU Dresden.
[TALKS] I am excited to speak at ConceptLab Hongkong and at the Network Initiative for Conceptual Engineering (NICE) at the beginning of 2023!
[PAPER] My paper "Negotiating 'women': metalinguistic negotiations across languages" was recently accepted in Synthese. Juchu!
