Who am I?
Who am I?
I have worked at the Law School since November 1998, and was made a Reader in Law in 1993.
Previously, I studied at the University of Manchester as an undergraduate (1983-7) and as a postgraduate (1988-1993) and have worked there as a Research Fellow (1996-8).
I have also worked as a lecturer at the University of Lancaster (1993-4) and as Research Fellow at the University of Salford (Jan-Dec 1995). My research interests lie in the area of gender and health care; cosmetic surgery and body modification; aesthetics; reproductive rights; autonomy; feminist ethics; comparative law and politics; French culture; and sustainability. I am a keen member of the Feminist
Research Cluster in the Institute of Humanities and Social Sciences Research. I am currently establishing a network of researchers on the body, cosmetic surgery, aesthetics and feminism.
