My research interests include the sociology of culture, especially the sociology of cultural practices of relevance to sustainability; new social movements, particularly environmentalism; and mobilities, especially cycling.
EPSRC Understanding Walking and Cycling Project
I enjoy thinking about the culture, politics, materialities and mobilities of everyday life, and about how present and future everyday lives might be otherwise.
Thinking about cycling, including its potential contributions to socially just and ecologically sustainable futures, has been my favourite intellectual activity over the last few years. I like to think that such thinking is at its best when Iâ??m out cycling!
