Hello and welcome to a corner of the internet that I am claiming as my own!
I’m a lecturer in the geography department at the University of Newcastle. I previously worked at Durham University. My research cuts across social and urban geography, and my primary interest in the relationship between night and society. This leads me off into a range of different research topics, ranging from street-lighting through to the time that people have their tea….
I’m also interested in the ways in which the built environment is managed so as to shape people’s daily experiences and behaviour. This comes from an interest in the work of Felix Guattari and Gregory Bateson, both of whom emphasized the ways in which our subjectivity is dispersed, dependent upon the objects, affects and discourses that we interact with on a daily basis.
On this site, I’ll collect publications, reports and research plans. I’ll also attempt to get blogging as and when I remember.
