Andréa is a first-year PhD student at the European Institute, LSE. She focuses on philosophical discourses in Modernity and in phenomenology about Europe, mainly through the contradictions of the incarnation of Europe in philosophies of History. She explores the tensions between a universalistic discourse of rational subjects ‘without a face’ and the embodied exclusions from that discourse – particularly on the basis of race, gender, and class.
Andréa holds a bachelor’s degree from Sciences Po Paris (specialism in European history and political sociology) and a dual master’s degree between Sciences Po Paris and the LSE in European studies (Culture and Conflict in a Global Europe programme). She received the prizes for Best Dissertation and Best Overall Performance in her programme. Before joining the European Institute, she worked as a teaching and research assistant at the College of Europe (Bruges), in the Politics Department and the General Studies programme, and as a research officer at the Fondation abbé Pierre, an organization fighting against social exclusion and poverty in France and Europe.
Andréa’s research is funded by an ESRC scholarship.
