We work at the intersections of culture, identity, society and space to explore how social and political phenomena are produced, experienced and felt, in order to interrogate their consequences. Our work is orientated towards issues of justice, equality, political activism and agency. We are interested in how particular power relations are formed in specific, local, national and transnational cultural, spatial and political contexts and what these may mean for our identity, our ability to influence and our sense of self.
We develop and explore contemporary, interdisciplinary, critical theory across psychology, sociology, criminology, politics and social policy, engaging in a wide variety of sociocultural 'sites' as contexts for this work including: leisure, consumption, embodiment, mediated communication, sexualities, masculinities, childhood, science, debt, mobilities, spatialities, technologies, work, the environment, and outer space. Our work exposes the mechanisms by which we are ‘marketised’ by the current political and economic rationalities and seeks to explore meaningful, ethical, just and sustainable ways of living our lives.
