Department of Organization

PhD fellow

Room: KIL/14.A-3.43
I am interested in how arts and culture is continuously organized into distinct domains of aesthetic expression and practices, and how these distinct domains relate dynamically to each other in what can be understood as an ecology of culture. My research is situated at the micro-, meso- and macro levels of cultural organization. 
My research is inquiring into the ways in which political economy, cultural politics, identity, the pragmatics of aesthetic practice and the patterns of cultural use effectively shape and reshape, regulate, and organize arts and cultural organizations.  
I am particularly interested in anarchist practice and theory on organization.
