Personal profile

Research interests

My primary focus at present is the relationship between universities and climate change. I am interested in all aspects of this question - from a reformist agenda to more radical revolutionary alternatives  - in order to examine what sorts of knowledge practices might be adequate for addressing the changed social, ecological, economic and cultural conditions of 2-4 degree global warming. From 2018-2020 I am on research leave as visiting Zennström Professor in Climate Change Leadership at the University of Uppsala.

I am interested in supervising PhD students in the following areas:

  • Educational Futures - in particular responses to environmental change
  • University futures - in particular the 'civic university' and changing university-public relationships to address change
  • Informal learning and learning cities
  • Engaged and co-produced research - in particular critical reflections on these methods in terms of their implications for research quality and enabling wider social change
  • Digital Cultures - I am interested in the role of the digital as a potential impediment and resource in facilitating adaptive responses to environmental change
