KATHARINA ANNA SODOMA
Since September 2020, I have been a Postdoctoral Researcher (wissenschaftliche Mitarbeiterin) at the University of Duisburg-Essen. Here I am a member of the Philosophical Anthropology and Ethics Research Group and part of the project “How Does it Feel? Interpersonal Understanding and Affective Empathy”, led by Neil Roughley and Thomas Schramme. Before coming to Essen, I was a doctoral student at the University of Vienna, where I defended my dissertation on moral relativism and the possibility of moral progress in April 2020. During my doctoral studies, I spent time as a visiting graduate student at New York University.
My research lies at the intersection of metaethics and epistemology. I currently work on the evaluative dimension of interpersonal understanding. I also have an interest in feminist philosophy and the philosophy of Ludwig Wittgenstein.
