Biography

I am a political theorist whose scholarly interests include 17th-19th c. political thought; theories of human rights, women's rights, and children's rights; bioethics; and comparative, international, and feminist approaches to the history of political thought. My most recent book is Wollstonecraft, Mill, and Women's Human Rights (Yale, 2016). With the support of an American Council of Learned Societies fellowship in 2015-16, I completed Mary Shelley and the Rights of the Child: Political Philosophy in Frankenstein (forthcoming, Penn Press, Oct. 2017).
