Grad Status: 
Dissertation Writer

Aysha's research interests focus on questions of subjectivity and subject formation, incommensurability, accusation, historical crisis, continuity and rupture, ideology, psychoanaltic theory and the law. She is currently formulating a dissertation project on the topic of unlawful detention, with a particular focus on the subjectivity of detainees - tracing their transformation as they move from being subjected to the law (through detention) to becoming subjects of the law (in military and civil courts). Prior to her arrival at Stanford, she completed an MA in South Asian Studies at Columbia University and her BSc and BA in Biology and Religion from McMaster University.
