Kathrin Thiele is Assistant Professor for Gender Studies in the Graduate Gender Program, Department of Media and Culture Studies at Utrecht University, where she teaches courses in feminist philosophies, technoscience studies, and literary and visual representations of femininity.
Her research interests include continental philosophy (esp. French philosophy), feminist theories of difference, and posthuman(ist) studies. Her published work explores a Deleuzian feminist legacy with focus on questions of ethics and politics. Her academic background lies in sociology, literature, and philosophy, and this transdisciplinary perspective translates both into her teaching of undergraduate and graduate courses at Utrecht University, and her current research on the future of sexual difference and a feminist cosmo-politics.
She is also MA-coordinator of 'Comparative Women's Studies in Culture and Politics' in the Graduate Gender Programme.
