Overview

My work falls into four broad areas: geographies of public life and spaces of democracy; social theory; changing cities; and learning from South Africa. Many, although not all, of these interests come together in my recent book, The Priority of Injustice: Locating democracy in critical theory.

I am a Fellow of the Academy of Social Sciences.

I am a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

I am the Editor for the Routledge Research in Place, Space and Politics Series. Here is a link to details of how to submit a proposal to the Series.

I blog about some of my research and teaching interests at Pop Theory, where you can find downloads of my research and teaching publications.

 

Qualifications

BA, Geography, University of Cambridge
DPhil, Geography, University of Oxford

Career

Before coming to Exeter in 2013, I was Professor of Geography at The Open University. I have previously taught at Salford, Reading, and Bristol, as well as spending a year on a research fellowship at Ohio State University.

Research interests

I have a long-standing research interest in understanding the reconfigurations of public life. This includes work on:

ORCID: 0000-0002-1291-1421

Long ago, my doctoral thesis explored understandings of the politics of representation in postcolonial theory and poststructuralism, and looked at nineteenth-century public discourses about African geography as an example of ‘white writing‘. 

Since then, my research has included further work on the textual-institutional geographies of colonial and postcolonial public spheres, including research on the construction of transnational literary publics around the Heinemann African Writers Series; research examining relationships between social movements, media and democratization in South Africa since the end of apartheid; and critical engagements with the conceptualization of ‘neoliberalism’ and other key concepts in and around human geography.

Much of my research has focussed exploring the geographies of  public life, including conceptualising the challenges of developing critical perspectives on new practices, sites and norms of public action (see the edited collection Rethinking the Public). My research on public formation is part of a long standing interest in understanding the spaces of democratic politics (including the books Culture and Democracy and Spaces of Democracy). This includes work that theorises the relations between urbanization and democratic mobilization, focussing on re-conceptualizing the geographical aspects of the democratic principle of ‘all affected interests’. It has also informed the development of the argument presented in my latest book, The Priority of Injustice: Locating Democracy in Critical Theory. My work on these issues draws on empirical projects, including research on new spaces of democracy in post-apartheid Durban; research on transnational HIV and AIDS advocacy networks; research on 'the urbanization of responsibility'; and research on ethical consumption exploring the place-based problematization of everyday consumption practices as a strategy for mobilizing local networks of global solidarity (see the book Globalizing Responsibility), which overlapped with an interest in the development of social theoretical perspectives on ordinary practices of virtue, such as care, generosity, hospitality, justice, and responsibility (see the edited collection Extending Hospitality). 

 

Research projects

My current research focuses on developing themes that arise from various projects: 

- further work on 'logical geographies of action' arising from The Priority of Injustice: Locating Democracy in Critical Theory.

- work on the geographies of urban social science, including work supported by a British Academy/Newton project on South African urban thought since the 1970s.

- further work on the theme of 'the urbanization of responsibility', seeking to make sense of why and how everyone loves cities these days.
