I teach art art history and theory. My modules examine visual histories and politics of race, feminism, materiality, objecthood and things through lecture series, seminars, workshops and tutorials over Levels Four, Five and Six. I supervise a wide range of BA theses on the visual arts. I also run experimental writing workshops that are designed to engage students of art and design in the potency and specificity of language and ideas of object agency and materiality in relation to process.
As an art historian my research examines contributions by women textile artists within histories of sexuality, pattern and modernity 1900 and 1945. My ongoing postdoctoral research examines connections between Indigenous crafts of the Indian subcontinent and British women’s artistic practices of the early Twentieth Century.
I am currently working with the London Transport Museum and TFL in queering histories of women designers within their archives. Most recently I have written a monograph for Eiderdown Books on Tirzah Garwood (forthcoming, 2023) and am editing 'Enid Marx’s Material Modern: The Enchantment of Pattern’ which will be part of Manchester University Press's Studies in Design and Material Culture Series (also forthcoming, 2023). Formally I was also a Paul Mellon Postdoctoral Reach Fellow (September 2021- April 2022) and the assistant-curator of 'Unbound: Visionary Women Collecting Textiles' at Two Temple Place (2019-2020).
