Biography

Emmanuelle Andrews is a Master’s student at the Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, from England (though prides herself less on being British and more on her Grenadan and Seychelloise roots). She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Anthropology and Law from the London School of Economics and Political Science. She is currently researching the way black bodies in the UK are utilised by the state, reading particularly the moment after the so-called London Riots in 2011 when Notting Hill Carnival was threatened to be cancelled as a racialised threat that continues to the present in rhetoric that sees carnival reported for its crimes and in actions that contribute to the global, violent othering of blackness. As such, she is interested in black ontology, notions of security, cultural difference and British (white) self-preservation. Recently dipping her toes into the arena of film-making, Emmanuelle has been embracing her creative side, and she also enjoys embroidery, writing poetry and dance.

Research

The interaction between race and British government policy and the English legal system – the legal theory, history and social influences that drive white male impunity and black male ‘criminality’.
