Potential Supervision Topics


  • I am interested in supervising projects in critical theory and cultural studies. 
    In critical theory, I have particular expertise in the work of Agamben, Badiou, de Certeau, Deleuze and Guattari, Foucault, Jameson, Lyotard and Zizek.
    In cultural studies, I am particularly interested in working on topics relating to the general area of popular culture. I have worked on popular music, popular literature and popular attitudes to war.
