Seraphine APPEL is a doctoral researcher in philosophy at Pompeu Fabra University, Barcelona. Currently, she is working on analyses of the effects of spatial aesthetics on temporality and time experience. Her research relates aesthetics to decolonial theory and explores how colonial projects and attitudes shape ambiances and structures of feeling through physical and narrative manipulations of space and time. A Canadian of European parents, her perspective is that of a settler when speaking on these topics, and her philosophical project is a deconstruction of settler-colonial attitudes, rooted in the investigation of an aesthetic topology of spaces and understandings of time and history. Seraphine Appel currently lives in Paris.
