From the standpoint of the history and practice of philosophy, what does a reckoning with the intellectual and material heritage of European colonial empires look like today? My research combines systematic and historical approaches to the many facets of this question and mobilises the rich continental tradition of thought dedicated to concepts of history and emancipation.

I am currently working on how the concept of ‘the geopolitical imaginary’ might help us to rethink the entanglements of the history of European philosophy with histories of colonisation. To that end, I seek to a) provide the first philosophical construction of the concept of the ‘geopolitical imaginary’; and b) use this concept as a lens through which to re-read the history of modern political philosophy, from theories of cosmopolitanism in German Idealism to the decolonial turn in contemporary critical theory.
