Fina Birulés is a lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Barcelona and has been a visiting lecturer at the universities of Puerto Rico, Chile, Parma, Florence and Vienna. Her research is focused on two main themes: political subjectivity, history and action; and issues of feminist theory, and the study of women’s philosophical works with particular attention to the work of Hannah Arendt and other twentieth-century women philosophers.

She has translated several works of contemporary philosophy, has written numerous essays and edited jointly-authored volumes on the work of Hannah Arendt and other contemporary women thinkers.
