Since October 2016, I am University Academic Fellow in Critical Urban Transformations at the School of Geography of the University of Leeds, UK.
My research focuses on:
- comparative approaches to gentrification, displacement and dispossession in the contemporary city,
- social exclusion, financialisation of housing markets and urban contestation, and
- migration, citizenship and the transformation of local politics in post-crisis scenarios.
Our colleague @sgonzalez_sara looking for campaign and community groups involved in saving/enhancing/promoting markets all around the UK. Get in touch with @markets4people if you know of any as they are holding a workshop soon in London
Interesting publication: 'Handbook of Territorial Politics' @ElgarPublishing. Beyond state-centric views; territory as an essential dimension of social and political debate!
