Place, space and belonging

An investigation into the politics of culture, place and space is a central focus of research in this area, particularly the role of power in shaping urban cultural practices and the production of city and city-regional spaces. Substantively, this includes a concern with issues of the constitution of life in cities around the world, subjectivity and experience, corporeality and affect, the production and circulation of cultural artefacts and imaginations, democracy and political cultures. These concerns are developed in close engagement with empirically grounded research on topics such as culture and politics.
