Dr. Amelie Stuart

Personal information

Amelie Stuart studied sociology and philosophy in Bremen. She completed her master's degree with a thesis on the "Legitimation of Minority Rights according to John Rawls". She then worked as a research assistant on a historical research project at the ZEIT/ Marion Dönhoff Foundation, where she archived and researched Dönhoff's estate. From 2011 to 2019, she was a university assistant at the Institute of Philosophy at the Karl-Franzens-University Graz. Here she was involved in projects on intuition, solidarity with and among refugees and the risks of rights violations in the face of climate change. Since 2014, she has been committed to gender equality in philosophy and was part of the organizing team of "Women in Philosophy". She is currently working on a BMBF joint project together with colleagues from the field of philosophy to strengthen the visibility of women in philosophy.

She was awarded a degree in philosophy at the University of Graz in 2019 with the thesis "'In a crowd of many worries'. The justification of preventive duties to help in the context of world poverty". The subject of her dissertation is an elaboration of duties to prevent poverty on the basis of Kant's philosophy of law and morality. Her current research focuses on early modern political philosophy, in particular theories of property, theories of (cultural) heritage and memory, and the philosophical canon.
