Filosofi og Idéhistorie

Sofia Mercader - New Postdoc at the Department of Philosophy and History of Ideas

Sofia will be part of the research project 'An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015'.

Sofía will be a Post-Doctoral Fellow in the research project 'An Intellectual History of Global Inequality, 1960-2015'. She will be working on the history of the concept of inequality through the analysis of a number of currents of thought in vogue since the 1960s, such as dependency and development theories, and Latin American Marxism. While her primary country of study will be Argentina, she will also focus on discussions taking place in the Latin American subcontinent more generally.  

Sofía was born in Argentina. She studied philosophy at the University of Buenos Aires and has a PhD in Hispanic Studies from the University of Warwick. She has also lived in Mexico City, where she held a postdoctoral fellowship at the Centre for Latin American and Caribbean Studies (National Autonomous University of Mexico). Her work primarily focuses on Argentine and Latin American intellectual culture, left-wing intellectuals, and Latin American feminism. She specializes in democratic transitions in Latin America and is interested in investigating ideas and intellectual culture during the late-twentieth century. Her work is also largely focused on magazines and printed periodicals.
