Dr Heather Brunskell-Evans is a Visiting Research Fellow at Kings College London. Her research focuses on the gendering of the body by contemporary discourses of sexuality and medicine. In particular, she analyses the bio-politics of pornography, prostitution, the sex trade, and transgenderism as material practices that occur within the context of structural gender inequality, neo-liberalism, global capitalism and the proliferation of digital-technologies. She has published widely on sexual and gender politics. She is also politically active in campaigning for and advising on the Nordic model of prostitution, and is a trustee of the newly formed charity FiLia, where she is the Director of its Stop Violence against Women and Girls section.
