Dr Maria O'Connor

Maria O'Connor is a research lecturer in Art & Design. Her research interests span cross-disciplinary (in particular the disciplines of literature, philosophy, visual arts and design) relations between post-structuralism, gender, language and ethics. Currently undertaking PhD research, the question of relations between literature and philosophy is deliberately coincidental to the laws of genre and gender. These coincidences are activated through a deconstructive framework. Further, the project seeks to interrogate metaphysical thought via a deconstructive approach to language. That is, through an interrogation of phallologentricism, relations between the borders of ethics, language and sexual difference seek to activate differences that go beyond the aporias of the subject (and its laws for knowing). The work relies heavily on such thinkers as Giorgio Agamben, Maurice Blanchot, Hélène Cixous, Jacques Derrida, Martin Heidegger, Jacques Lacan and Emmanuel Levinas.
