Dr Ian Cook
Associate Professor of Geography
Ian is a cultural geographer with longstanding interests in material geographies, multi-sited ethnographic research, connective aesthetics and critical pedagogy. He combines these in/as 'follow the thing' work.
He has more recently added to these interests new media ecology, commodity activism and making methods to create followthethings.com, a spoof online shop, resource, database and fieldsite stocked with provocative 'follow the thing' work by academics, students, filmmakers, artists, journalists and others.
Here, there and everywhere, Ian writes as 'Ian Cook et al' to acknowledge the collaborative nature of all of his work.
He is a Visiting Professor at the University of Paris 7 - Denis Diderot (2016-21), is a member of the Global Coordination Team of the Fashion Revolution movement, and coordinates Exeter's Cultural and Historical Geographies research group.
