Alloun, Dr Esther
Esther was awarded her PhD in early 2021 with examiners’ commendation for outstanding thesis. Her PhD looked at the intersectional politics of human and animal rights in Israel-Palestine and the workings of settler colonialism. Her work weaves in ethnography, phenomenology and affect to tease out the challenges and possibilities of intersectional activism in the context of a war zone. Her research interests lie more broadly in feminist theory and environmental humanities, political geography, and ethnographic research.
