She is currently the Chichele Professor of Social and Political Theory at All Souls College, Oxford, and has held permanent or visiting academic posts at University College London, Yale, NYU and UCLA.

It was acclaimed by critics and authors ranging from Judith Butler and Katherine Rundell, to Pandora Sykes and Emily Ratajkowski.
Lisa Taddeo’s Three Women became a world-wide sensation – forever changing how we think about women and desire. Nearly a decade in the making, Three Women was hailed instantly as a feminist classic- a staggering work of nonfiction that was the result of thousands of hours spent in the company of its subjects– three women whose lives reveal profound and previously unspoken truths about life and love, womanhood and desire.
Lisa has contributed to New York magazine, Esquire, Elle, Glamour and many other publications. Her short stories have won two Pushcart Prizes. Her debut novel Animal centres on Joan, the most provocative and mesmerising narrator you will encounter in 2021. 'Like a series of grenades exploding' Marian Keyes
