Dr. C. E. (Charlotte) Knowles


Charlotte Knowles is assistant professor of ethics, social and political philosophy in the faculty of philosophy. Her primary research areas lie in feminist philosophy and phenomenology.

These interests come together in her work on complicity, where she focusses primarily on complicity in gendered contexts, exploring notions of freedom, responsibility and agency. Before coming to Groningen, Charlotte worked in the UK. She received her PhD from Birkbeck College, University of London and held positions at Birkbeck and Oxford Brookes. She writes a regular column, ‘Living the Life of the Mind’, for The Philosophers’ Magazine.
