Research interests

Feminist theory, ethics and research practices, Feminist Research, Sustainability, women's movements, ecofeminism, archives, Research methodology, oral history, community-based participatory research, Queer Theory, interdisciplinary research, transdisciplinary research, narrative research

My work is centrally concerned with ‘re-visioning’ an eco/feminist politics of sustainability, by applying the lens of sustainability in new contexts. This holistic approach links environmental sustainability with human and non-human health and well-being, asking how we can sustain collective and personal movements towards social justice, and how the very practice of research, and research methods, might be reworked to sustain a more-than-human world. It is focused on the necessary interconnections and relationalities between these.

I pursue this re-conceptualisation of sustainability through three interrelated foci:
(i) sustaining a more-than-human world (ii) sustaining research, and sustaining research data and (iii) sustaining communities and movements (feminism)
