“A feminist politics of ambivalence: an uncertain response to contemporary dilemmas”

She has worked with Warlpiri in Lajamanu for over two decades, as well as with other Central and Western Desert artists and art centres. Her book breasts, bodies canvas: Central Desert Art as Experience (UNSW Press 2007) modelled a ‘feminisation of the Dreaming’ in the Papunya Tula movement and Remote Avantgarde: Aboriginal Art under Occupation (Duke UP 2016) models new and emergent desert Aboriginal aesthetics as an art of survival.

She is author of Bisexual Spaces: A Geography of Sexuality and Gender (2002), Why Stories Matter: The Political Grammar of Feminist Theory (2011) and Considering Emma Goldman: Feminist Political Ambivalence and Historical Imagination (2017).
