Biography:

Claire Horn is a PhD Candidate in Law at Birkbeck, University of London, where she is co-supervised by Daniel Monk and Elena Loizidou. Her research focuses on the impact of ectogenesis on legal frameworks governing abortion, parenthood, and surrogacy in Canada, the United Kingdom and the United States. In particular, she is interested in how legal scholars have mobilized the artificial womb to imagine the future of law in these areas. Claire draws on feminist legal theory and reproductive justice scholarship to reconsider the possible intervention of ectogenesis. Claire teaches criminology at Birkbeck, and is a recipient of the Canadian Centennial Scholarship Fund 2018-2019.
