Amarantha Groen is a Junior Lecturer and Tutor in the Humanities at Erasmus University College.
Groen teaches courses on all levels within the Humanities department at EUC, including 'Modernity, Early Modern Political Philosophy, Climate Crisis, as well as Skills Courses such as Academic Writing and Project Development.
After her training in Gender and Ethnicity Studies (RMA, 4.0 GPA) and Philosophy (BA, 4.0 GPA, Cum Laude), Groen moved to New York where she completed a 2-year acting conservatory program at the Stella Adler Studio of Acting, and continued to work for their Outreach Division at Manhattan Detention Center.
Groen wrote her Master thesis on the potentials of (philosophical) wonder for feminist theory, and her current research interests are located at the intersections of feminist philosophy and queer theory, critical theory and new materialism.
As Erasmus University College is a college with a commitment to cultivating ‘critical citizens,’ Groen enjoys working in an environment that recognizes the entanglement of theoretical and practical commitments, further illustrated by the college’s teaching method of Problem Based Learning (PBL) as premised on engaging ‘real-world’ problems.
