Her research interests revolve around issues of cultural representation (both visual and textual), discourse, ethics, and community formation. Her dissertation (defended February 1, 2013) deals with the Southern African concept of ubuntu and the ways in which it relates to other (predominantly Western) concepts of communality and intersubjective relations.
