University College Cork (BCL 2000, LLB 2005, PhD 2010) and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (MDra 2002). Her doctoral research, entitled Intersex Individuals, Gender and the Limits of Law was conducted under the joint supervision of Drs Mary Donnelly and Siobhán Mullally. Tanya is a member of the board of directors of Transgender Equality Network Ireland, and is a founder member of Intersex UK. Tanya joined the Law Faculty in October 2009. Her research interests lie broadly in the areas of bodies and the law, gender and the law, feminism, medical law, human rights law and family law. 

Research Interests

My research interrogates the impact which law's conception of corporeality has on certain types of bodies and the issues which particular interventions on bodies raise that challenge certain assumptions of the law. Therefore, it is interdisciplinary with a primary focus of law, but drawing from medicine, ethics, sociology and history. The main areas which my research covers are consent in medical law; medical ethics; human rights law; the theory of gender and law; feminist theory and family law.

At present, there are three strands to my research. The first builds on my doctoral work and analyses the relationship of intersex and law. It focuses on the question of how the determination of legal gender impacts on intersex people and probes the possibilities of existing legal principles on consent to medical treatment and human rights norms to deliver respect for intersex autonomy, bodies and gender identities.

The second strand examines the laws prohibiting female genital mutilation/cuttings (FGM/C). It examines existing or proposed legislation in a variety of jurisdictions on the issue and highlights gaps in protection. It also investigates the impulses behind prohibiting FGM/C in light of other genital cuttings which are not proscribed e.g. male circumcision, surgery on intersex childre, cosmetic female genitoplasty, in order to interrogate questions of the agency afforded to particularly cultured women.

The final strand of my research is the examination of legal questions raised by gender identity and the formation fo families. There are two aspects to this work. The first, analyses the legal regulation of intimate relationships and the issues which gender identity questions raise in this context. The second, investigates the law's response to issues raised by gender identity questions and parenthood.
