Welcome to A Life Unexamined!
My name is Jo, and I write from Australia. I’m a feminist and queer activist, and an aromantic asexual.
I’m an ancient historian and archaeologist by training, and particularly interested in feminist and women’s history (not always the easiest thing in my field!). I’d like to do my PhD in Roman women’s history one day, but for now I’m working elsewhere, trying to do my bit for Australian society.
I’ve been blogging since 2011, mostly focusing on asexuality and visibility work, queer stuff, feminism, and ancient history. I’m now retired from this blog, but you might see me around from time to time in other places.
I speak to the media and give workshops on asexuality and intersecting topics. For past media appearances, have a look on this page. I am also a contributor to The Asexual Agenda, a collaborative blog furthering upper-level discussion on asexuality and related topics. I occasionally guest post on other blogs.
If you’re interested in talking to me or want to get in touch about something else, feel free to email me at email@example.com.
