Geographical Sciences and the Research Institute for Law, Politics and

Justice at Keele University, UK.


Inspired by the putative  mobility turn  his research concentrates on the

processes and cultures of securitisation and militarism through the spaces

and histories of the aeroplane. Specifically, this on-going research

examines its infrastructures (airports/borders, airspaces/territories),

subjects and affects (violence, fear, terror, awe).


Two monographs are forthcoming from these interests. Mobility will be

published by Routledge in 2009 and Aerial Geographies: mobilities, spaces,

subjects by Wiley-Blackwell the following year.
