Lisa Forsberg

Summer Research Fellow 2020

Dr Lisa Forsberg

Lisa is a British Academy Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oxford (in the Faculty of Law, Somerville College, and the Oxford Uehiro Centre for Practical Ethics), working in moral and legal philosophy. Lisa’s main current research focus, the project, “Changing One’s Mind: Neurointerventions, Autonomy, and the Law on Consent”, is on medical consent and examines the extent to which English law on consent sufficiently protects morally salient patient interests. In addition to consent-related research, she currently works on the nature and value of achievement, longtermism and the public interest, and J.S. Mill’s The Subjection of Women and utilitarian feminism. Lisa holds a PhD in philosophy and law and an MA in ethics and medical law from King’s College London and a BA in philosophy from Stockholm University.
