Professor MacLeod teaches courses centered on the politics of imagination and change. Her work draws on political theory, literature and art, and the history and politics of Europe, the Middle East, and China, to address contemporary political questions. She is the author of Accommodating Protest: Working Women, the New Veiling, and Change in Cairo, as well as articles on women and the politics of transformation. Her current interests include the intersection of politics and literature, especially historical and futuristic fiction, and the symbolic politics of place and landscape, including landscape making and representations of landscapes in art and fiction.
