Jekaterina Markow

Doctoral Research Fellow, FU Berlin

Jekaterina Markow holds a BA in Political Science from Bremen University and an MA in Political Theory from the Goethe-Universität Frankfurt. She studied in Bremen, Frankfurt, Darmstadt and New York (New School for Social Research). She received a student scholarship from the German Academic Scholarship Foundation (Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes) and a grant from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) for her stay at the New School. Since 2014, Jekaterina has been a permanent research fellow at the Centre of Advanced Studies “Justitia Amplificata” at the Freie Universität Berlin and is currently pursuing a PhD with a thesis on social exclusion in (German) academic philosophy. In her dissertation, she intends to investigate possible links between persistent patterns of social exclusion in academic philosophy and the discipline’s dominant understanding of its own relation to society. 

Among Jekaterina’s research interests are social philosophy in general and early Critical Theory in particular, philosophy of migration, critique of ideology, and the relationship between social theory, empirical social research and political practice.
