Aylon Cohen

Aylon Cohen is a Ph.D. candidate in the department of Political Science specializing in political theory. Situated at the intersections of queer theory, feminist studies, and intellectual history, his work focuses on the 18th-century democratic revolutions in Western Europe and North America and asks how bodily practices of intimacy enabled citizens to form attachments to abstract political ideas such as equality, human rights, and the nation. Aylon holds a BA (honours) in political science from the University of British Columbia and an MPhil (distinction) in political theory from Oxford University.
