My main area of interest is the relationship between politics and the ways that we organise, experience and imagine time. For example, in my book Feminism, Time and Nonlinear History (2014), I ask what difference it could make to feminist politics if we think of the history of feminism as a fractured, back-and-forth, multi-stranded process, rather than a straight line of progress from past to present to future. More recently, my interest in the politics of time has led me to consider how 'pregnant time' is configured around the future of the imagined child within dominant cultural imaginaries, and what this means for pregnancies that end in miscarriage. My book on this topic - Pregnancy without Birth - will be out in 2022.
