Profile

Magdalena Górska is Assistant Professor at the Graduate Gender Program, Department of Media and Culture Studies and at the Institute for Cultural Inquiry (ICON), Utrecht University.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Magdalena Górska's research focuses on feminist politics of vulnerability. Her dissertation book Breathing Matters: Feminist Intersectional Politics of Vulnerability develops a nonuniversalizing and politicized understanding of embodiment where human bodies are conceptualized as agential actors of intersectional politics. Her work offers intersectional and anthropo-situated while posthumanist discussions of human embodiment and agency and focuses on the quotidian bodily and affective practices of living as political matters. She is a founder of the Breathing Matters Network.

 

She is currently developing a new research project entitled Unlivable Lives. It is based on interviews with individuals who attempted or consider suicide. It analyzes what lived experiences make some lives more suffocating than others, and in what quotidian, individual and structural contexts. The project's goal is to provide insights into what social transformations are necessary to sustain livable and breathable lives for more of society’s members.
