New PhD employee: Anni Haahr Henriksen

Anni Haahr Henriksen is employed as PhD at Centre for Privacy Studies, starting 1 April 2018.

Anni’s main research project at the Centre for Privacy Studies is focused on the idea of silence as both a private inward space and a possible public threat.  

The aim of her project is to explore the paradoxical notions of privacy in the acts of speech and non-speech, mapping the development of notions of privacy during the reign of Elizabeth I (1558-1603).

Her research will centre on the place of privacy in distinctions of public and domestic, inward and outward, involving an examination of the Star Chamber as a locus for the transgression of boundaries of the personal, the professional, and the public as well as the heuristic zones of body, mind, and confidentiality, seen through the lens of the Ex Officio oath as a public strategy to crush the subject’s private space of silence.

Anni is cand.mag. in English and History from UCPH and holds a MPhil degree in Medieval and Renaissance English Literature from St. Catharine's College at the University of Cambridge.

We are looking forward to working with Anni at Centre for Privacy Studies.
