Human Geography PhD Studentship

This project takes forward research from political geography, urban studies and geomatics on the rippling impacts of new technologies on social relations, everyday practices, and the governance of people and things, as a means of investigating this ‘smart’ turn, while acknowledging and responding to the recent uptick in policy and media debates on the reshaping of privacy, anonymity and consent.
