Sviatlana Viarbitskaya (1981, Gomel, Belarus) has a PhD in Physics (2008, Stockholm University) and is also a part-time dancer, performer and artist. In GCAS she reads philosophy and theory. She is interested in figuring out how Philosophy and Humanities describe and explain the world she is living in. Her current focus is in how the aforementioned practices of knowledge (philosophy and theory) situate themselves vis-à-vis and critique the contemporary practice of Science. Of particular interest are the concepts of subject, agent, power and politics as they are conceived and dealt with from within the different branches of thinking practices.
