Marisa Žele (1990) is a young research felow at the Institute of Philosophy at ZRC SAZU and a PhD student at Postgraduate School ZRC SAZU. She graduated (M.A.) at the Department of Philosophy of the Faculty of Arts of the University of Ljubljana, with the study on the historicity of the monstrous and horrendous (2015), and is currently writing her PhD thesis under the mentorship of dr. Aleš Bunta and dr. Alenka Zupančič. In her research, she focuses mainly on the European imaginations of the Other and related historical conceptualizations of the monstrous and corporeal, marginal themes of the fantastic, horrifying and bizarre in European literature, philosophy and history of science, and currently more intensely, on the question of “error” in the method of interpretation, in connection with concept of deception in philosophy and culture. Her main fields of interest are philosophy of history, epistemology of the Middle Ages, history of science, post-structuralism and theoretical psychoanalysis.
