Weds 9.30-11.30 and Thurs 11-12. I work part time and Fridays is my day off.
I am interested in how our cities are becoming spaces for the expansion of neoliberalism and how ideas and policies of neoliberal urbanism emerge, travel and mutate at different spatial scales. Increasingly I am also focusing on resistance to these processes by social movements and community groups. I have so far mainly concentrated in international research comparing different European cities but I am looking forward to expanding this geographical focus.
