Research Topic

My PhD research attempts to bring together a feminist critique of neoliberal capitalism and a contribution to the feminist debate concerning the role that the Feminine Other acquires within Western theories of subjectivity and self-relation. My examination of post-industrial and neoliberal capitalism concerns, specifically, the type of subjectivity that emerges within this context, and the unique relation to alterity that the neoliberal subject can be said to acquire. A central purpose of this research will thus consist in elaborating the problem of the Feminine Other in terms of the transformations that such notion or category undergoes within neoliberal capitalism.


I hold an MA in Continental Philosophy from the University of Warwick. I completed my BA in Philosophy at the University of Essex, where I also worked as a research assistant for The Ethics of Powerlessness project and The Essex Autonomy Project.
