PhD fellow

My research focuses on the relationship between human identities and democratic systems, attempting to understand democratic complexes as a mode of societal formation entwining with human lives and selves in their full complexity rather than as matters of elections and their felicity conditions. My PhD project focuses on new articulations of identity in conjunction with novel modes of cohabitation and affiliation in urbanizing Borneo. In this work I take  inspiration from the deconstructionist work of philosopher Jacques Derrida to open ways of thinking about human identities and to challenge euro-centric conceptions of democracy.
