About

I am a social and political philosopher at King’s College London. My research interests are in theories of political freedom, justice and power. My focus is on what is known as the civic republican conception of freedom, whereby freedom is equated with being independent of any form of arbitrary controlling power. 

I write about both the contemporary application of republican theory and the historical ideas upon which it draws. I address the question of securing a fair value for freedom and the benefits of citizenship to all under conditions of social diversity, and of the relationship between structurally constituted and individually wielded forms of social power.

I have a special interest in the work of women writers from the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, and African American writers from the nineteenth century, as political philosophers – particularly (to date) Catharine Macaulay, Mary Wollstonecraft and Frederick Douglass.
