My main area of interest is the relationship between politics and time: how power relations and political engagement are shaped by specific ways of organising, imagining and experiencing time. For example, in my book Feminism, Time and Nonlinear History (2014), I ask what difference it could make to feminist politics if we imagine the history of feminism as a fractured, back-and-forth, repetitive process, rather than a straight line of progress from past to present to future. More recently, my interest in time has led me to consider the politics of 'pregnant time' from a feminist perspective and I am currently in the process of writing a new book, Pregnancy without Birth: Embodying the Present.
