My research interests focus on political and moral philosophy and critical theory, with a particular emphasis on the work of Theodor Adorno and Judith Butler.
My PhD comprises a critical intervention in the recent ‘turn to ethics’ in post-foundational philosophy, principally in the work of Judith Butler. This research examines political responses to precarity through a different theorisation of the relationship between ethics and morality than that provided by Butler. This project reworks Butler’s theorisation of precarity with recourse to Adorno’s critique of morality. It argues that starting with the somatic makes possible a moral theory that begins neither with ontology nor with ethics. Rather, it begins with political responsiveness to the moral impulse that emerges from the somatic experience of suffering.
