Carlota SerrahimaPostdoctoral Researcher
University of Barcelona
I got my PhD from the Universitat de Barcelona in 2019. Before joining ReConAg, I held postdoctoral positions at the Institut Jean Nicod in Paris and the Center for Philosophical Psychology in Antwerp.
My main philosophical interests lie in bodily awareness and self-awareness, and in the ways in which they interact with phenomenal consciousness in general. The guiding principle of my research is that bodily experiences are genuinely first-personal states, both because of the peculiarities of bodily representations in them, and because of how subjectivity is involved in all forms of phenomenal consciousness in normal conditions. Besides, I am currently very interested in exploring the affectivity of dysmenorrhea as a debilitating condition. I will contribute to the project by thinking of how the peculiarities of our bodily experiences inform our experience of agency.
