Jakub Stejskal

Welcome to my homepage! I am an aesthetician (the philosophical kind!) with deep interest in the history, archaeology, and anthropology of visual art. I am also an associate editor of the academic journal Estetika.

I am a DFG research fellow at the Institut für Philosophie, Freie Universität Berlin. Previously, I was a postdoctoral fellow at the Dahlem Humanities Center, Freie Universität Berlin. I completed my PhD at the Department of Aesthetics, Charles University, Prague, in 2014. In the academic year of 2020/21, I will be a NOMIS fellow at eikones – Center for the Theory and History of the Image, University of Basel.

My surname is pronounced “Stay-skull”.
