Research interests

My research investigates the ways in which Jacques Derrida's work on deconstruction is a critique of the proper and violence. The proper take many forms which includes but is not limited to: property, propriety, oikos, lack, family, nation, reason, ontology. All such articulations are 'proper' forms of political and societal organisation or borderings which entail exclusion and marginalisation.

My thesis investigates the ways in which deconstruction offers the possibility of resisting the enforcement of these boundaries, their exclusions and their violent marginalisations. This project researches democracy as a form of resistance against violent impositions of borders. 

I am also researching the politics of populist discourse in the UK between 2014-2019; and the history of immunity and auto-immunity in political theory for two separate research projects co-ordinated by the School of Humanities and CAPPE.
