(In Memory of) Lynn Staeheli


My research is broadly located within the fields of urban, political and feminist geographies.  Substantively, my research explores big, contentious topics such as 'democracy', 'citizenship' and 'politics.'  More concretely, I have explored topics related to publicly accessible space, protest and activism, immigration and refugees, the role of faith, religion and spirituality in public life.  I am currently working on three projects:  public life and democracy in the US and UK, youth and politics in divided societies (Bosnia-Herzegovina, Lebanon, and South Africa), and refugees from the MENA region to Europe.
