Dr. Ane Engelstad


I teach political theory at POLIS, and I am the Deputy Director of the Centre for Contemporary Political Theory. I specialise in contemporary political philosophy, feminist philosophy, and political and social epistemology.

Until recently, I was the editor in chief of Marx and Philosophy Review of Books.

Research interests

In my research, I show that key arguments from feminist epistemology can lead to new insights in political philosophy, and that this impacts some recent debates surrounding how we should approach doing political philosophy more broadly. See my personal website for further details.
