 Details about Expertise / Competences / Technologies
I am a social and cultural geographer and social theorist interested in cities and the experiences of authority, time, place, commonality, vitality, and beauty within them. In the context of widespread concern about the erosion of society’s ability to imagine and create alternative futures, I am currently undertaking research on experiences of futurity, arguing for a spatial politics of time that suspends dominant temporalities that put pressure on people continually to speed up and fill in spaces for creativity, contemplation, and critique. I am working on empirical research on the ways in which futures are experienced through the materiality of specific urban areas and places, and on the role of imaginaries of ‘future generations’ in contemporary political movements focused on the commons. I am also interested in participatory politics and post-humanist approaches to community.
