Her aim is to describe a theory of bodily and affective agency, by engaging high-order consciousness coherent with people’s lived everyday experiences. Currently located in Copenhagen, Denmark, Camille received her MA in philosophy from the University of Oslo in 2018 and is ABD, currently completing her PhD dissertation.
