In my current position as senior lecturer with the Department of Geography, I teach modules in social and cultural geography. I am particularly interested in the spatialities of gender, sexuality and 'race' and the application of social theory in geography. Specific areas of interest include: feminist care ethics, critical geographies of familyhood and community and queer politics.
Changing Landscapes of Singapore (GEK2001/SSA2201/GES1003), Introduction to Social and Cultural Geographies (GE2231), Gender and the City (GE4228), Geography and Social Theory (GE5216).
I am currently working on three projects. 1) Feminist care ethics and conflictual dialogue in the classroom. 2) Community politics, rights, gender and sexuality in Singapore and 3) Fieldwork as experiential pedagogy.
I am interested in how the geographies of gender, sexuality and ‘race’ are integral to our understanding of the biopolitics of family and community. I am particularly interested in how spatial concepts like distance and proximity influence how we think about ethics, care, responsibility, love and friendship, and how these in turn impact social relations in various spatial context (home, community, classroom). As a feminist geographer, I am also interested in civil society and community activism that relate to gender and sexuality politics, and the spaces of possibility they represent.
