Dehlia Hannah

Visiting Professor

Dehlia Hannah, PhD, is a philosopher and curator, and Mads Øvlisen Fellow in Art and Natural Sciences at the Department of Chemistry and Biosciences at Aalborg University-Copenhagen. Her current research project, An Imaginary Museum of Philosophical Monsters, examines the role of fictional places, beings, and technologies in the history of philosophy. She holds a Doctorate in Philosophy and a Certificate in Feminist Inquiry from Columbia University, with specializations in philosophy of science and aesthetics. Her recent book, A Year Without a Winter (Columbia University Press, 2018), reframes contemporary imaginaries of climate crisis by revisiting the literary and environmental aftermaths of the 1815 eruption of Mount Tambora. Her forthcoming monograph, Performative Experiments, examines contemporary artworks that take the form of scientific experiments. Her writing, teaching and curatorial practice broadly explore emerging environmental imaginaries and philosophies of nature.
