Law with French Law student, University College London, UCL / Paris II Pantheon-Assas

I'm a second-year law student at University College London (UCL) doing a dual degree with Université Panthéon-Assas in Paris, leveraging my bicultural background as a Franco-American.
My current research interests are varied, ranging from topics such as gender and the law to consociationalism in Northern Ireland. I'm always seeking new opportunities to conduct legal or multidisciplinary research.
Currently taking part in a couple of pro bono initiatives, I would welcome pro bono opportunities as well, in particular legal aid for refugees or migrants.

Research Scholar, Durham university

Hey! I'm a psychology student at Durham University and my research centres around a form of prejudice within the transgender community, transmedicalism, and the consequences for those who endorse it regarding wellbeing, community belonging and internalized stigma. I'm so excited and honoured to have been given this opportunity and I'd love to get to know other scholars to learn more about you and your research. Feel free to get in touch :)

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me if you have any interest in the following: Buddhism, Buddhist philosophy, Ambedkar studies, women and Buddhist philosophy, cross-cultural philosophy, critical theory, French philosophy, Laruelle’s non-philosophy, non-Buddhism, philosophy of nonsense, philosophy of death.
Cath Brislane

Subject Lead/ Undergraduate Scholar, University of York

I am a final-year undergraduate scholar pursuing a BA (Hons) in English Literature and Linguistics at the University of York. Besides being a scholar, I am the Arts and Humanities Subject Lead on the Scholar's Network and the 2020-22 Arts and Humanities faculty rep at the University of York! My first summer of research was based in phonetics, entitled 'The untapped potential of human language: Investigating the perception of typologically unattested and rare sounds'. In it, I get to look at phonemes that are not commonly found in speech, if at all!

My Leadership in Action project was based around the experiences of students with disabilities and long-term health conditions when accessing Higher Education in the UK. I'm currently creating teacher training based on the paper I wrote for this project, and working with UCAS to help inform UK university admissions policy. 

Finlay Langham (she/her)

Student, University of St Andrews

I'm a third-year student at St Andrews studying English! My research is into spoken word poetry and its connection to politics, particularly in Edinburgh (it's a bit niche but I love it). I am also part of the feminist society and a public face of Nightline. I love to meet new people and bake what is objectively too much shortbread at odd hours.

Pronouns: they/them

I am currently in my second year of an undergraduate degree in Classics/Comparative Literature at the University of St Andrews. In my research project Queer Catullus - The Power of Gender Impersonation in Creative Arts, I am particularly interested in how Gender and Feminist Studies can be applied to Classical Studies and transformed into accessible and valuable material for community projects with LGBTQ+ teenagers. Following my previous involvement with a project that looked at the impact that climate change had in the Late Bronze Age, I aim to give my studies an interdisciplinary spin. 

If these topics are something you are interested in, I am happy to connect via Social Media to geek out and chat!
