Finance, space and power
The research group of OpenSpace Research Centre explores what difference it might make: theoretically, empirically, ethically and politically; to take seriously the nonhuman dimensions of the practices and matters of concern at the heart of the social, and what this in turn might imply for our understandings of space and power. In attempting to think through these and related challenges, inspiration is taken from a wide range of sources including: science and technology studies, anthropology, history, feminisms, philosophy, political theory, postcolonial studies, urban studies, poststructuralism, and environmental studies, as well as geography.
Our research is engaged empirically with topics including: biosecurity, food, animalities, museums, consumption and disposal, earth processes, disasters, health and care, education, economies and finance, gender, and others.
