Bio note

Bartholomew Ryan is philosophy researcher and coordinator of the CultureLab at the Nova Institute of Philosophy (IFILNOVA) at the Universidade Nova de Lisboa. His academic and creative works orbit around the central motif of ‘transformation’ and the plurality of the subject which takes into account the masks, journeys and (multiple) identities that define the modern human condition. Amongst his various publications, his books include Faces of the Self: Autobiography, Confession, Therapy (co-editor, 2019), Nietzsche and Pessoa: Ensaios (co-editor, 2016), Nietzsche and the Problem of Subjectivity (co-editor, 2015), and Kierkegaard's Indirect Politics: Interludes with Lukács, Schmitt, Benjamin and Adorno (2014). He has also published various articles on the theatre of the self linking philosophy and literature, focusing especially on writers such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Pessoa and Joyce. He is an integrated member of the research groups ‘Questions of Subjectivity: Literature and Philosophy’ and the ‘Lisbon Nietzsche Group’ in the CultureLab; and is also a member of ‘HyperNietzsche’ and the ‘Experimentation and Dissidence’ Research Project at the Centre of Philosophy at the University of Lisbon. He was awarded the FCT Exploratory Grant (April 2014-March 2015) for the project ‘The Plurality of the Subject in Nietzsche and Pessoa’ in which he was the project leader. He teaches a graduate course on the Theatre of the Self (modernism in theatre and philosophy) in Art & Experience for the Masters degree in Aesthetics in Philosophy at Universidade Nova de Lisboa. He is also currently working on two books: on co-editing a volume on Fernando Pessoa and Philosophy; and on the various journeys and faces of human and land rights activist and revolutionary Roger Casement.
