Honorary Research Fellow
I am interested in questioning the sources of normativity in political argument, particularly those surrounding the tension between liberalism and value pluralism. This has led me to an exploration of the relationship between history and philosophy in political theory, especially with regards to justifying the need to approach the history of political thought as a critical argumentative tool. I am a feminist, and increasingly interested in Marxist critiques of liberal theory. I am currently working on developing an application of H.G. Gadamer's hermeneutic method to political theory that explores phenomena like post-truth in politics.
Before teaching at PAIS I taught at the New College of the Humanities, the School of Slavonic and Eastern European Studies at UCL, and the LSE. I have a BA in Humanities from Universidad Carlos III (Madrid), and an MSc and a PhD in European Studies from the LSE.
