I engage with the fields of cultural studies, biopolitics, and transatlantic studies in order to think through the gendered, racial, and generational politics of social reproduction.  My work has focused specifically on British and American representations of apocalypse, considering the “new world” fantasies that shape visions of The End: the kinds of violence that such fantasies authorize; the counter-histories of capitalist modernity that they reanimate; and the multiplicity of possible futures that they sometimes open up.
