Esther R. Berry holds a PhD (2012) from the School of Philosophical and Historical Inquiry, at the University of Sydney, Australia. Her research interests include postcolonial and corporeal feminist epistemologies. Under Dr. Gammel's mentorship, Dr. Berry is in the process of revising her doctoral dissertation into a monograph, examining the symbolic legacies of the body in the continuing wake of empire. Dr. Berry's study of nineteenth-century mourning jewellery, which recalls hair's powerful capacity to prompt invisible life and labour histories, is the topic of her upcoming exhibition (2014). Dr. Berry is a peer-reviewer for Sydney University Press, and Australian Feminist Studie. She is delighted to be a member of the dynamic MLC research team and to act as a senior advisor to PUBZ, the MLC's writing and publishing forum.
