Ann Van Sevenant (born June 10 1959) is a Belgian philosopher.

Early life

Van Sevenant was born in Torhout, Belgium. She studied philosophy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (Free University Brussels, VUB), where she obtained her PhD in 1987. The title of her doctoral thesis was “Benjamin Fondane's Aesthetics. Inquiry on the autonomy of art.” After her humanities, she studied Film and Photography at the Lucas School of Art in Brussels. Inspired by the teaching of Jan Wüst, she decided to study philosophy at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), where she took the courses of Leopold Flam, Hubert Dethier and Annie Reniers.

After having obtained her master's degree in 1982, she lived in Rome where she studied history of art and aesthetics at the University La Sapienza, and attended the courses of Mario Perniola and Emilio Garroni. While preparing her doctoral thesis, she took classes with Samuel IJsseling in Leuven and later in Paris the seminars of Jacques Derrida, who was an important source of inspiration.[1]

Ann Van Sevenant was professor of philosophy at the Universiteit Antwerpen|University College of Antwerp from 1989 to 2004.[2] She lectured (2007/2008) at the Philosophicum de Kabgayi (Ruanda) and was invited at different universities (Urbino, Palermo, Rome, Amsterdam, Leiden, Nijmegen, Utrecht, Paris, Albany, Haifa, Oxford).

She published in numerous articles in four languages and eighteen books on contemporary philosophy and aesthetics (see bibliography). Her work was commented in several international journals.[3][4][5][6][7] She is an independent researcher and gives conferences at home and abroad.[8]
