Personal profile

Research Biography

I am sociologist of cultural production and urban cultural economies, which is informed to various degrees by urban governance and the socio-spatial (historical) backdrop of institutional political economy. I am currently working on a monograph for Routledge titled €œCultural entrepreneurs in the age of austerity: remaking the new petit bourgeoisie'.

Research Interests

My research interests reside in the broad area of state-economy-society relations and theorising these from different sociological traditions. Substantive areas of research include soicology of cultural production, cultural work and identity, and governance. Theoretical frames draw on Polanyi, actor-network theory, and Bourdieu. Methods include qualitative data collection and analysis, and social network analysis.
