I’m a professor emerita of psychoanalysis and gender studies at the University of Cambridge, where I established a Centre for Gender Studies. I'm also Founder Director of the Expanded Doctoral School in Psychoanalytic Studies at the Psychoanalysis Unit of University College London.

I’m not a specialist. I’m what people call a polymath, which means I go across a lot of disciplines. The sorts of subjects I range in are sociology, politics, socialist politics and art. I’m currently working in the field of contemporary art, Louise Bourgeois particularly, and in English literature, which was my first degree.
