About Me

Originally from the Netherlands, Adrienne Dengerink Chaplin studied philosophy, art history and musicology in Amsterdam. Between 1999 and 2007 she taught philosophical aesthetics at the Institute for Christian Studies in Toronto part of which period she served as President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetics. Upon her move to the UK she held a temporary lectureship at Kings College London where she is still a Visiting Research Fellow. She currently lives in Cambridge where she is a Research Associate at the Margaret Beaufort Institute. Dengerink Chaplin works on the interface of philosophy, theology and art with a particular interest in the way art articulates meaning about the world, the human condition, and the divine. Working across the boundaries of analytic and continental philosophy, her book The Philosophy of Susanne Langer: Embodied Meaning in Logic, Art and Feeling was published by Bloomsbury in 2020. She is the founding director and curator of the travelling exhibition Art, Conflict and Remembering: the murals of the Bogside Artists which has been shown all over the United Kingdom.
