About Helen A Fielding

My work explores the intersections of feminist phenomenology, embodiment, and visual culture. I draw in particular on the works of M. Merleau-Ponty, as well as L. Irigaray and M. Heidegger. My research falls within the realm of continental philosophy and in particular phenomenology and addresses issues of sexual difference, technology, temporality, spatiality, as well as racialization. I draw on artworks (employing Samuel Mallin’s body hermeneutics) not as aesthetic objects, but in order to think alongside them. My PhD is in Social and Political Thought from York University, and my Postdoctoral Fellowship was at the Phenomenolgische Kollegium at the Bergische Universitaet Wuppertal, Germany.
