Current Research Projects

I recently completed a book called Anaesthetics of Existence: Essays on Experience at the Edge. Stay tuned for information on its publication.

In 2016 I won a SSHRC Insight Grant for my new project, Sleep is the New Sex. Put simply, I hope to write the first feminist philosophy of sleep. This work continues Anaesthetics of Existence in its focus on liminal states of consciousness and their political consequences, but has a more obviously thematic focus and will be written in a more popular voice.
