University of Innsbruck and hold a PhD in Political Science from there.


Since 2018 I am associated with the University of Central Florida; before that I held a position at the

University of New Orleans and long term appointments at research institutions in Austria.

Recently I released the new book The End of the Nuclear Family. Capitalism, Love and the State (in German 2018, second edition) which will soon be available in English and Italian. Furthermore I have published numerous articles, give lectures in Europe and North America and am involved in numerous international networks. I was also cofounder of the online Journal Boomerang.

My scientific focus is: Politics and Reproduction, Motherhood, Fatherhood, Family and Population Policies, European Welfare State, Gender and Political

Theory, Theory on Civilization and Women in Islam.
