Research interests

My current research is practice-based, working towards the development of a collection of poetic writing that contributes to the current cultural and artistic movement challenging speciesist and anthropocentric ideologies as part of a wider response to the current climate crisis.

My theoretical interests are in how poetry and experimental forms of writing can help to challenge patriarchal and anthropocentric hegemony, in particular how these ideologies relate to the language of oppositional binarism. This is largely informed by psychoanalytic feminism, specifically the work of Helene Cixous, and by ecofeminist understandings of the human/nature binary, and how these categories might intersect with other binarisms both within and outside of the academy. As part of this, I am exploring the political and intellectual significance of hybrid forms of writing, particularly those that can be defined as both critical and creative. 

My research utilises a walking methodology that is accountable to decolonial, feminist, and queer theories, as a way of decentering the human as well as Eurocentric, heteronormative, and masculinist knowledges.
