Dr Mark Jayne

My research interests focus on urban social and cultural geography. In particular I am concerned with theorizing the intersections of consumption, production, regulation, governance and policy. I have also written on issues such as identity, lifestyle and forms of sociability, affect, emotions and embodiment.

The central theoretical concern of my work is to re-think ‘the city’; to interrogate political and economic practices and processes through social and cultural analysis; and to understand geographies of alcohol, drinking and drunkenness.

Dr Josephine Mylan

Jo's research interests lie in understanding how society can transition to more environmentally sustainable ways of consuming resources. This will require changes in the way we provision goods, including the technologies, economic and social arrangements, and cultural conventions which shape processes of production, distribution and consumption.
