I am an Associate Professor in the Monash Philosophy department.
My main area of specialisation is early modern philosophy (c. 1650-1750), with a particular focus on women philosophers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries.
Together with Karen Detlefsen (Penn), I recently published Women and Liberty, 1600-1800: Philosophical Essays, an edited volume with Oxford University Press (2017). For our OUP blog post on women and liberty, see here.
My other books include The Philosophy of Mary Astell: An Early Modern Theory of Virtue (Oxford University Press, 2015); Women Philosophers of the Seventeenth Century (Cambridge University Press, 2002); A History of Women’s Political Thought in Europe, 1400-1700 (Cambridge University Press, 2009; with Karen Green); a co-edited volume Virtue, Liberty, and Toleration (Springer, 2007; with Karen Green); and a modern edition of Astell’s The Christian Religion (CRRS & Iter, 2013).
I am currently preparing a two-volume collection of the correspondence of women philosophers of early modern England, under contract with Oxford University Press’s New Histories of Philosophy series.
