Polona Curk

Polona Curk is an independent scholar. She previously worked as an associate research fellow in Psychosocial Studies at Birkbeck College, University of London, where she also completed her PhD. She has a background in psychoanalytic studies and works at the intersection of psychoanalysis, feminist philosophy and social theory. Her research examines intimacy and autonomy as two intrinsically linked processes through which the self lives relationally, and theorizes intimate autonomy as connected to continual attentiveness to the issues of dependency and destructiveness. She writes on the topics of attachment, intimacy, power dynamics, ambivalence, autonomy, and ethical responsibility. She has previously worked as a counsellor-volunteer in a non-governmental organization against domestic violence.
