Kate Kirkpatrick is Lecturer in Religion, Philosophy and Culture at King's College London, whose research examines the interplay between philosophy, religion and culture in the twentieth century and particularly its impacts on existentialism and feminism.

After a stint in the publishing industry, Kirkpatrick's Mst and DPhil study focused on the concept of nothingness in the early philosophy of Jean-Paul Sartre. She has since written a biography of Simone de Beauvoir entitled Becoming Beauvoir, and made important contributions to the study of such figures as Saint Augustine and Paul Tillich.
