Paris Fellowship

Having just got back to Plymouth after my first couple of days at Keele University, I will be heading to Paris tomorrow for four weeks as a visiting fellow at Université de Cergy-Pontoise to work with Damien Masson (who I’m collaborating with on a research project called ‘Sensory Enigmas of Contemporary Urban Mobilities – some details here).

I’m going to try to keep something of a diary of my stay on here which will mix reflections of the writing we’re doing (which will be focused on the themes of ambience, atmosphere, and security/surveillance), fieldwork activities, the touristy things I do, and more general thoughts and reflections. Hopefully this will mean a slightly higher volume on posts on here…

    Dear Paul,

    My University does not have a subscription to soc-cul journal, I am really interested in your work and would wanted to ask if I could perhaps be emailed a copy of Abrahamsson, S. & Simpson, P. (2011) The limits of the body: boundaries, capacities, thresholds. Social and Cultural Geography.

    Many thanks.
