Personal profile

Research Biography

I am currently Lecturer in Women’s and Gender Studies at Flinders University. Prior to this position I taught Gender Studies and Philosophy at The University of Queensland (2016-2019). Although I now reside in Australia, on Kaurna land, I am from South Africa and began my undergraduate studies in Drama and Philosophy at The University of Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa during the early years of the post-apartheid transition to democracy. My research interests include gender studies, feminist philosophy and politics, post/decolonial theory, contemporary social movements and, more recently, feminist philosophies of technology. My monograph Irigaray and Politics: A Critical Introduction (published by Edinburgh University Press) was published in June 2019.
