Lucienne Spencer

Wellcome trust funded postdoctoral researcher

I'm a postdoctoral researcher for the Wellcome Trust funded project ‘Renewing Phenomenological Psychopathology’ at the Institute of Mental Health, University of Birmingham.

My research primarily focuses on phenomenology, epistemic injustice and the philosophy of psychiatry.

I completed my SWW-DTP funded PhD in Philosophy at the University of Bristol in 2021. I was supervised by Prof. Havi Carel and Dr. Lisa El Refaie. My thesis is entitled 'Breaking the Silence: a Phenomenological Account of Epistemic Injustice and its Role in Psychiatry. I passed my viva with no corrections (woohoo!).

I'm also a member of the executive committee for the Society for Women in Philosophy, UK.
