Current Work

I am working on an edited volume reconsidering the work of Simone de Beauvoir and Luce Irigaray as materially anti-determinist and relationship between their work as read through this lens offered by Myra Hird and other "new materialisms." In other writings I am putting the ethics of Simone de Beauvoir into conversation with environmental philosophy, critical race theory, new materialisms.
