Overview

My research explores the relationship between identity and the economy.  I use critical political theory to look at how the economy shapes our identities, and in turn how our identities shape the economy. Recently I have also been working on the link that civic participation and decentralised governance plays in this process.  The majority of my work in this area has been with regards to sustainable communities, regional development, and territorial politics, often in relation to economic development in Cornwall.  I use complexity theory, the new materialisms, art, phenomenologies and some aspects of posthumanist thought to consider these questions, and have recently extended my focus to explore how cultural trends shape attitudes towards the environment and the green economy.  Although firmly based in politics, I have active or previous collaborations with economists, geographers, planners, sociologists, textile designers and artists; and have worked with community groups, policy practitioners and health organisations.  I welcome exploring future collaborations.

I am also a member of Environment and Sustainability Institute and the Politics department in the College of Social Sciences and International Studies.
