Personal profile

Research

My research takes place within the fields of social and political theory, philosophy and the history of ideas. My current research focuses on historical and contemporary conceptualizations of the people and their implications for conceptions of democracy and contemporary debates over populism.

My doctoral research focused on the development of the notion of the sovereign state and its relationship to society and economy - drawing on the early works of Karl Marx and G.W.F. Hegel.

Other areas of interest include: theories of the state, political theology, sovereignty, critical theory, Marx and marxisms, Foucault, Agamben and political economy.
