Irene van Oorschot

Irene van Oorschot is senior lecturer in the humanities at Erasmus University College.

With her background in feminist and postcolonial science studies and pragmatist philosophy, Irene van Oorschot approaches the humanities as an important resource in thinking with and through human and non- and post-human realities. Teaching and researching, to her, are first and foremost practices of building collectives and archives – important tasks in individualized and forgetful times. Irene is especially interested in the relationship between knowledges and ecologies; or, in the way various ways of seeing and accounting for the world are situated within specific spaces and problematics. Her current focus extends her engagement with knowledge practices to include a concern with the materialities and temporalities of cognitive labor, the affective texture of knowledge practices and sites/spaces of intellectual escape.
