Professor Clare Chambers

I am Professor of Political Philosophy and Fellow of Jesus College at the University of Cambridge. I’m a political philosopher specialising in feminist theory, contemporary liberal theory, theories of social justice, theories of social construction, and bioethics.

My latest book, Intact: A Defence of the Unmodified Body is published by Allen Lane (Penguin Random House). It’s available from all good bookshops including Blackwells and Waterstones.

I’m also the author of:
Against Marriage: An Egalitarian Defence of the Marriage-Free State (Oxford University Press, 2017)
Sex, Culture, and Justice: The Limits of Choice (Penn State University Press, 2008)
Teach Yourself Political Philosophy: A Complete Introduction with Phil Parvin (Hodder, 2012)
The Routledge Handbook of Philosophy of Sex and Sexuality edited with Brian D. Earp and Lori Watson (Routledge, 2022)

I’m currently working on Freedom & Equality: Essays on Liberalism and Feminism, which is under contract with Oxford University Press. And I’ve written numerous articles and chapters on political philosophy and make regular media appearances.

My agent is Sophie Scard at United Agents.

I’m not the novelist who’s written wonderful books like Small Pleasures.
