I am currently conducting a critical history of assisted dying in order to see how academic, judicial and parliamentary responses to assisted dying have been impacted by medical and academic discourses, as well as shifts in institutional arrangements and new ways of thinking about death/dying. By drawing upon critical approaches to law, history and linguistics, I stich together multiple stories and painstakingly trace and map the ideological dimensions of the debate to reveal the previously unexamined machinations of power and ideology that have for so long reinforced, inculcated and insulated the modern debate of assisted dying.

My research interests are: history of systems of power in relation to the body.
