My research project is entitled: ‘Hermeneutics of the gendered, racialized and ageing body’. I want to philosophically understand what embodied factors such as gender, race and age imply, both in terms of a person’s personal identity and in terms of being socially situated and signified. My sources are in the field of (critical) phenomenology, hermeneutics, feminist philosophy. I have published on the philosophy of Irigaray, Butler and Ricoeur.
