Personal profile

Research interests

My main area of specialisation is the history of philosophy, with a particular focus on women philosophers of the early modern period (c. 1650-1750).

My books include:

Women Philosophers of the Seventeenth Century (2002); A History of Women's Political Thought in Europe, 1600-1800 (with Karen Green, 2009); and The Philosophy of Mary Astell (2015).

My edited books include:

Virtue, Liberty and Toleration (with Karen Green, 2007); Mary Astell's Christian Religion (2013); Women and Liberty, 1600-1800: Philosophical Essays (with Karen Detlefsen, 2017); and Women Philosophers of Seventeenth-Century England: Selected Correspondence (2019).

I am currently engaged in two ARC-funded projects:

  • a Discovery Project on the philosophical foundations of women's rights (1600-1750), with D. Brown and M. Deslauriers;
  • a Discovery Project on women and liberty in the early modern and enlightenment periods, with K. Green and K. Detlefsen.

I also recently completed a Future Fellowship project on the ethical thought of seventeenth-century feminist philosopher Mary Astell (2010-16).

For further information about my research (including an up-to-date list of publications), please go to my personal webpage.
