Paper Title
“Augmenting People’s Geographies of Seattle: Digital platforms as participatory methods”

My scholarly work is situated at the intersections of human geography, urban studies, cultural studies, and critical social thought. Integrating approaches from across these fields and using place-based ethnographic and participatory methods in particular, I explore how ordinary, routine practices and taken for granted or ‘common sense’ conceptions of the world are—in and through their embeddedness in space—bound up with broader formations of urbanized culture, power, social reproduction, and political economy.
