- et al.
Founded in 2001, the UCLA-Utrecht Exchange Program promotes cooperation in teaching and research, the international exchange of ideas, and the scholarly efforts of participating faculty and students at the partner institutions. A recent participant in the program, Evelien Geerts, chatted with us recently about her work and her experiences at UCLA. With a Master’s degree in Philosophy at the University of Antwerp in Belgium, Geerts is currently enrolled in the Gender and Ethnicity program at Utrecht Uni- versity in The Netherlands. Her main areas of interest are Continental philosophy and feminist philosophy (critiques on psychoanalysis and pornography, and care ethics), Anglo-American political philosophy, and sexual difference philosophy. For her Research Master’s thesis, she will focus on a diffractive reread- ing of the philosophies of Julia Kristeva and Luce Irigaray.
