Biography

I am a researcher in motherhood, gender and psychoanalysis, and have examined intersections of these areas in the fields of Irish writing,  as well as contemporary poetry, fiction, art and popular culture more broadly, and I have published extensively in these areas.  I am especially interested in embodiment and how cultural and activist practices are carried and shaped by bodies, and how we live in, are shaped by and shape environments, natural and human-made. I am particularly interested in bearing witness to the ways in which artists and writers cross genre boundaries and merge modalities to give expression to the consciousness and political formations that will be needed to respond to the various crises that the planet currently faces. I have supervised PhDs on motherhood and gender in fiction, drama, art and poetry, performance art and age studies, and welcome PhD proposal in these and any of the areas listed above. I'm a member of the Motherhood Project, which also welcomes interest from affiliated scholars and students. The different modalities on which I have published and taught are held together by a longstanding interest in psychoanalysis. I’m interested in an eclectic approach, combining object relations, lacanian, Anglo-American feminist as well as well as French feminist and Jungian approaches. Many areas of psychoanalytical research have been refreshed in recent years by trauma work, neuroscience and evolutionary biology, and this, combined with ecofeminism and queer ecology, as well as indigenous and feminist economic models of rematriation and gift economies, can help create responsive critical paradigms for understanding and integrating the innovative work of artist/activists seeking a sustainable future.  I draw these different analytical threads together for the monograph on which I am working, entitled Mama/L/ Dark Matter: Motherhood, Ecofeminism and the Transhuman Horizon. This book seeks to restore the mammalian maternal body to the analytical tableau of academic practice. I argue that the maternal body forms the ‘dark matter’ that shapes but is not acknowledged in the dominant analytical and aesthetic discourses that shape the academy, and that bringing it to light requires a paradigm shift in how we understand and transmit knowledge as well as create cultural value. It explores how the archetype of dark matter, when unnamed and unacknowledged is inextricably bound up with the more dangerous climate and future-threatening fantasies and projections that populate technological discourses and virtual realities.  The book highlights writers and artists working with maternal frameworks that illuminate ‘dark matter’, and how this work suggests  dyadic and extended relational models of the subject, of community, and social justice.  It also explores how such work calls the academic community to reflect on the history and cost of our own practices and challenges us to effect a paradigm shift in how we understand ‘form’, knowledges and  representation.
