I am a political theorist and an assistant professor in the Department of Gender and Race Studies at the University of Alabama.
My areas of research include sex and gender in the history of political thought (especially in the 17th and 18th centuries), contemporary feminist political theory, and politics and literature. I also have a longstanding interest in the political thought of the French Enlightenment.
You can read about my book manuscript, The Lost Passions of Republican Thought: Politics and Emotions in the French Enlightenment, as well as my next research project, a genealogy of political freedom in feminist thought.
In 2018-2019, I was a lecturer in the American Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, and Master of Liberal Arts and Science Programs at Vanderbilt University. I was previously a visiting assistant professor with the Vanderbilt Department of Political Science and the Whitman College Department of Politics, as well as a lecturer in the UCLA Department of Political Science. A complete list of the courses I have offered is available here.
I have held the Carol G. Lederer Postdoctoral Fellowship in Gender Studies at Brown University’s Pembroke Center for Teaching and Research on Women and the Clark Dissertation Fellowship at the William Andrews Clark Memorial Library in Los Angeles. I received my PhD in from the UCLA Department of Political Science in 2014.
