Fiona Jenkins is Associate Professor in the School of Philosophy, RSSS, Australian National University. Her current research covers two projects, one on Judith Butler, which focuses on questions of political legitimacy, violence and non-violence, in post-national frameworks; the other on gender equity and ideas of ‘excellence’ in academic disciplines. She teaches on contemporary French philosophy, on Nietzsche, on film, and on radical democratic theory. Following a DPhil at Balliol, Oxford, she spent two years teaching at Essex University, taking up a post-doc. at Sydney University in 1997 and moving to ANU in 2002. She has also been the Convenor of the ANU Gender Institute, 2013-15.
Throughout the year the Gender Institute Management Committee assists the Convenor in determining the directions of the Gender Institute, including the selection of the grant applications and prizes for excellence in research.
