Penelope Ingram, Associate Professor, received her PhD from the University of New South Wales, Australia. She is a specialist in feminist and postcolonial theory. Her book, The Signifying Body: Towards an Ethics of Sexual and Racial Difference, argues for a relationship between the “fundamental ontology” of Martin Heidegger and an ethics of sexual and racial difference, as theorized respectively by Luce Irigaray and Frantz Fanon.
