A Brief Bio
Professor Marie-Eve Morin is a Canadian philosopher and Professor of Philosophy at the University of Alberta. From 2012 to 2018 she was the editor-in-chief of Symposium: Canadian Journal of Continental Philosophy. Morin is known for her work on “post-structuralism” and “post-phenomenology” (Derrida, Levinas, Nancy). She also has interests in existentialism and phenomenology (Husserl, Merleau-Ponty, Heidegger, Sartre), questions of alterity, selfhood, community, expanding the problem of human relations toward questions of world and globalization, and thinking of emancipation and social justice in spatial/worldly terms rather than temporal/historical ones. Marie-Eve engaged in an extensive comparative study of Merleau-Ponty and Jean-Luc Nancy ultimately hoping to be able to bring her interpretation of both thinkers to bear on the realism/idealism debate which was reopened by the speculative turn.
