Congratulations, Dr. Cox!
Having completed her doctorate at Brunel University in science fiction literature and continental philosophy, Dr Emily Cox researches sf, gender theory and the work of Giorgio Agamben and Gilles Deleuze. She is particularly interested in applying Agamben’s concepts of inoperativity and bare life to gender theory in sf media and popular culture. Dr Cox also works as Public Relations editor for the journal Femspec, and her article ‘Denuding the Gynoid: The Woman Machine as Bare Life in Alex Garland’s Ex Machina’ is soon to be published in the journal Foundation.
