Rebecca Hill is Senior Lecturer in the School of Media and Communication.
Rebecca conducts research in feminist theory, decolonial theory, continental philosophy and Ancient Greek philosophy and literature.
Her first book, The Interval: Relation and Becoming in Irigaray, Aristotle and Bergson, was published by Fordham in 2012. The monograph focuses on the concepts of difference and sexual difference through close readings of Luce Irigaray's thinking of the interval, Henri Bergson's postulation of duration and Aristotle's theory of place. In an extension of Irigaray's project, The Interval shows the wide reaching implications of the concept of the interval for the theorisation of inter-subjectivity and posthuman concepts of becoming and difference.
Rebecca's current book project engages with concepts of time, difference and relation.
Rebecca is a founding convenor the Philosophies of Difference Group (PoD) and she is a member of the Communication, Politics and Culture Research Group in the School of Media and Communication.
Rebecca teaches in the Literary Studies Contextual Major in the School of Media and Communication.
