The main areas of my current academic research include contemporary feminist writing, feminist cinema, affect theory, and phenomenology. I am currently interested in how notions of violence and non-violence are consolidated, as well as how they are inhabited and lived through gesture and movement, in literary and cinematic narratives. Additional Interests: Criticism, women’s spaces/utopias, gender theory, postcolonial feminisms, French feminism, visual art, performance theory, essays/memoir
