Professor Allaine Cerwonka does interdisciplinary research on a diverse range of topics. Her first book is titled, Native to the Nation: Disciplining Landscapes and Bodies in Australia (University of Minnesota Press: Borderlines series). It is an ethnographic analysis of the construction of the nation (using race, gender, and geography as her principle analytical axes) through everyday place-making practices. Her second book, Improvising Theory: Process and Temporality in Ethnographic Fieldwork, explores the use of ethnographic methods for interdisciplinary research and for developing theoretical claims, (University of Chicago Press, co-authored with Liisa Malkki). Her work on feminist knowledge production and traveling feminist thought in the region has appeared in journals such as SIGNS and Cultural Studies; and she has taught a course on intimacy. Her more recent work crosses the more dramatic divide between the social sciences and humanities on the one side and the natural sciences on the other. Through her work and teaching on the human and posthuman, she engages with early Enlightenment science (especially the links between the natural sciences, taxonomy, and European imperialism). She also works with theories of biopower and posthumanism (in relation to biocapitalism, postgender, cyborgs, the animal, and biopolitics).

My research focuses on various aspects of cognitive development in human infants. Specifically, I study infants' visual processing from the level of spatial attention and eye-movement control through the intermediate levels of object and face perception to the level of interpretation of observed actions in terms of goals and understanding of communicative signals. I am also interested in how cognitive processes are accomplished by the human brain and how cognitive development can be explained by the neural development in infancy. Beyond behavioral measures, I use high-density event-related potentials and near-infrared spectoscropy (optical imaging) to measure the on-line functioning of the brain while infants are engaged in various activities.
