Mariam Fraser (

Mariam Fraser is a Senior Lecturer of Sociology at Goldsmiths, the University of London since 1999. Prior to that she was Lecturer in Sociology in the Department of Social Sciences at Loughborough University. She obtained her undergraduate degree from the University of Liverpool and her doctorate from Lancaster University. 

Mariam Fraser published Identity without Selfhood: Simone de Beauvoir and Bisexuality, Cambridge University Press (1999), which proposes an original conception of identity and subjectivity in the context of recent post-structuralist and queer debates. The Body: A Reader, with Monica Greco, Routledge (2004) looks at 'the body' within a range of social concerns, from the processes of racialization to the vagaries of fashion and performance art, enacted as surgery on the body. Inventive Life: Approaches to the New Vitalism, with Mariam Fraser and Celia Lury, Sage (2006), demonstrates how and why vitalism - the idea that life cannot be explained by the principles of mechanism - matters now.

She is the author of numerous articles, and received grants from The Wellcome Trust (2000, 2001), The British Council in Germany (2002), and the The British Academy (2007).
