I interrogate the social and political ramifications of ideas that are largely unquestioned within seemingly leftist, progressive, and liberal sites; this approach—along with a commitment to centering critical geographies and the role of place in people’s lives—marks the through line of my work that examines things as ostensibly disparate as reproductive justice, crisis pregnancy centers, and abortion politics; food movements and their championing of local foods consumption; the coalescing of feminist affects around intersectionality; LGBTQ activists’ calls for LGBTQ visibility and simultaneous disdain for queer rurality; and health advocates’ work to ensure strong and pain-free pelvic floors. I am also interested in the stories that Feminist Studies tells about itself and the politics and practices of feminist and queer pedagogy.
