Biography

My research lies at the intersection in continental philosophy, feminist theory, and bioethics. I am particularly interested in the contribution of these fields to philosophy of the body. I am currently working on a book manuscript that examines Michel Foucault’s concept of biopolitics, a form of that regulates the life of bodies and populations. I am also co-founder and co-director of The Kristeva Circle, an academic organization dedicated to advancing scholarship on the work of Julia Kristeva. For more information about these projects please visit www.sarahkhansen.net and www.kristevacircle.org.
