Profile

Biography

Alexandra is a doctoral student jointly supervised by the School of Law and School of Philosophy and Art History. Her PhD research considers the unexplored socio-cultural legacy of Operation Spanner, paying heed to its widely cited legal implications and appearance before the European Court of Human Rights. This oral history project concerns itself with the problematic balancing of bodily autonomy and public policy, as it is expressed in activist conceptions of consensual harm. It examines historical sentiment and temporal trajectory of thought surrounding SM sex and body modification in particular. Alexandra previously studied at the London School of Economics, earning her MSc in Human Rights. She is a member of the Doctoral Affiliates Network.
