Fiona O'Neill. BSc, PGCE, MA.
Professionally I am a performative educator or Storyteller;
working formally and informally in education for almost
twenty years, in numerous ways and settings, with people
of all ages and backgrounds.
I am now becoming an academic mis-fit. With a background
in the biological sciences - anthropogenesis and primatology,
and a Masters in science and technology studies, I'm
now working on my research PhD in interdisciplinary
bioethics/ applied philosophy, at IEPPP, Lancaster University.
For this, my interests have focus on: Body[s] and Belonging[s]
in the future-present of spare part medicine. Exploring
how we might accommodate to and e/merge with intimate
biotechnologies - dialysis, prosthetics, tissue grafts,
genes. Thus, questioning conceptions of tekhnologia,
the human and the cyborg; so as to make a contribution
to the new biotechnologies debates.
