Personal profile


My primary research field is social and cultural geography. Going from urban studies and urban everyday life over social theories of practice to the relationship between practice, body and space. Included in that is a general interest in the development of social ontologies and the philosophical basis of geography. Keywords are: urban studies, space and place, theories of practice, body and sex/gender, emotional geography, cultural diversity.
