My name is Emanuela Carta, and I am a postdoctoral fellow at the Husserl Archives at KU Leuven (Belgium), as part of Julia Jansen and Emanuele Caminada’s project 'Functionaries of Humanity: Husserlian Phenomenology, the UNESCO, and the problem of universalism in science and culture'.
Prior to joining KU Leuven, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the University of Montreal and at the University of Fribourg. In addition, I was research affiliate at the Cologne Center for Contemporary Epistemology and the Kantian Tradition (CONCEPT) and at the Husserl Archives at the University of Cologne.
I obtained my PhD in philosophy (Doctor Europaeus) in 2018 from Roma Tre University, with a dissertation entitled "Wesen, Eidos and Normativity in Husserl's Phenomenology". During my PhD studies, I was a visiting researcher at the Husserl Archives at KU Leuven and an Ernst-Mach research fellow at the University of Graz. I first studied philosophy at the University of Rome La Sapienza (BA, MA) and at KU Leuven (MPhil).
My research focuses on issues at the intersection of phenomenology, ethics, epistemology, and feminist philosophy.
Some other things about me: I am Italian and Canadian, born and raised in Rome. I love dogs, classic literature, music, hiking, and traveling. I spend my life with an epistemologist, and our sweet daughter Delia.
I am Book Review Editor of The New Yearbook for Phenomenology and Phenomenological Philosophy.
