Lead Supervisor: Dr Richard Wild

Project Title: A criminological exploration of 21st Century London: Crime, place and space (or fear and loathing in London?)

Project Description :
This project will bring together issues of contemporary concern; gangs, riots, economic crisis and globalisation, the militarisation/securitisation/commodification of urban space, surveillance and new technologies (CCTV) applying seminal models and formulations; City of Quartz: Excavating the future of Los Angeles (Davis, 2006); The precariat: The new dangerous class (Standing, 2011); Chavs: The demonization of the working class (Jones, 2011); Cities under siege: The new military urbanism (Graham, 2010); City Limits: Crime, Consumer Culture and the Urban Experience (Hayward, 2004) in exploring changing crime phenomena in our schizo hypermodern city/ghetto playground/prison London. The project will critically examine the spatial agency of both the ‘new global elite’ and the precariously employed majoritarian (i.e. non‐ migrant labour) ‘edgeworkers’, the increasingly ‘defective and disqualified consumers’ (Bauman, 2011) and how they are experiencing ‘transformative crisis’ in urban space (Burawoy, 2000) both real and the unreal in late modern capitalism in crisis.
The successful applicant will be based at the University’s Greenwich campus.
