Nau mai! Welcome!
I am a writer from Aotearoa New Zealand, of Pākehā (NZ European) and Māori (Ngāi Tahu) descent. I am a PhD candidate in the Department of Sociology and Social Policy at the University of Sydney, affiliated with the Sydney Environment Institute. I hold a Master of Arts in Philosophy from The University of Auckland, and diplomas in te reo Māori (the Māori language) from Te Wānanga o Aotearoa. I have written for publications such as the Guardian, Newsroom, and Takahē. My book, Love Notes: for a Politics of Love, is published in New York by Lantern Books. In 2018, I co-organised 'The Politics of Love: A Conference' at All Souls College, Oxford. Also, I was kaiwhakatipu (editor) of He Ika Haehae Kupenga.
It is time to imagine our entire politics in loving terms
We are all animal lovers (with Kim Stallwood)
Since 2015, I’ve been developing the Politics of Love. (To follow the Politics of Love, join the e-mail list: http://eepurl.com/hxoaen) Now, I’m raising funds to give talks on this vision of politics. My aim is to take the Politics of Love to other places. Please help me share the Politics of Love by making a donation.
