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.
