In the Fold between Life and Art
This was an AHRB funded project which looked into art as a dynamic area of social action creating conditions of possibility for nomadic subjectivities to emerge. A number of journal articles and three monographs have emerged from this project. The books and the articles highlight the dynamics of spatiality in the constitution of the female self in art, particularly focusing on complex interrelations between art education, social class and space/time/matter entanglements. It has initiated my on-going interest in the assemblage of ethics, aesthetics and politics, as well as in neo-materialist philosophies and epistemologies.
