ABOUT

I draw on the tools of philosophy, particularly feminist and continental traditions, to study and think about the meanings, structures, and norms of gender, race, sexuality, class, and nationality. I ask how these social and political phenomena are made and lived, and I am curious about how they shape one's possibilities in the world and relationships with others. I am especially interested in the realities of gender-based violence as they impact gender and sexual minorities and liberating visions of existence crafted by marginalized groups and social movements.
