Dr. MacGregor is one of a small number of scholars in the UK specialising in the interdisciplinary field of gender and environmental politics. Her research explores themes of environmental (un)sustainability, gender (in)equality, and theories and practices of citizenship. This research is animated by critical questions about power relations, environmental and social justice, the gendered divisions of labour and responsibility, and strategies for eco-political transformation in affluent societies. MacGregor’s research has been published in a range of journals including British Politics, Sociological Review, Hypatia, Local Environment, Energy Policy, Geoforum, Social Movement Studies, and International Journal of the Commons. Recent books include the two volume anthology Environmental Movements around the World: Shades of Green in Politics and Culture (co-edited with Timothy Doyle; 2014) and the fourth edition of Environment and Politics (co-authored by Timothy Doyle and Doug McEachern; 2015). She is the editor of the Routledge Handbook of Gender and Environment (2017) and co-editor (with Nicole Seymour) of ‘Men and Natuure: Hegemonic Masculinities and Environmental Change’, a special issue of the open access digital journal published by the Rachel Carson Center (LMU Munich) RCC Perpsectives: Transformations in Environment and Society (2017).
