Om forfatteren

Mary Gilmartin is a Professor of Geography at Maynooth University. Her research examines migration with a particular focus on contemporary Irish migration and mobility. She has published widely on migration within the discipline of geography, and previous research projects have been funded by organisations such as the Irish Research Council and the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission. She was previously Managing Editor of Social and Cultural Geography, the leading international geography journal, and remains a member of the editorial board.

Phil is a Professor of Urban Studies at King’s College London, specialising in cities and social charge, sexuality and space, urban consumption and legal geography. He is particularly interested in the city as a site of social conflict. His work draws on theories of the city developed in urban geography and urban sociology, and also engages with debates in socio-legal studies given his particular interests in the way urban disorder is regulated.

He has contributed leading studies exploring how community opposition to particular ‘unwanted’ land uses shapes governmental and regulatory responses. He is particularly known for setting international agendas in the study of the relationship between gender, sexuality and the city via research on the spatial governance of sex work, summarised in his ′Cities and Sexualities.’ A major theme running through much of his work has been a focus on questions of displacement and spatial justice, something that is particularly relevant in the context of London′s housing crises and the ongoing gentrification of much of the capital. This is evident in his Economic and Social Research Council-sponsored research on the impacts of estate renewal in London, as well as studies of the impacts of retail gentrification on working-class communities (the latter summarised in his monograph ′The Battle for the High Street′).  

Rob Kitchin is a Professor in Maynooth University Social Sciences Institute and Department of Geography. He was a European Research Council Advanced Investigator on the Programmable City project (2013-2018) and a principal investigator on the Building City Dashboards project (2016-2020) and for the Digital Repository of Ireland (2009-2017). He is the (co)author or (co)editor of 31 other academic books, and (co)author of over 200 articles and book chapters. He has been an editor of Dialogues in Human Geography, Progress in Human Geography and Social and Cultural Geography, and was the co-Editor-in-Chief of the International Encyclopedia of Human Geography. He was the 2013 recipient of the Royal Irish Academy’s Gold Medal for the Social Sciences. Sue Roberts is the Associate Provost for Internationalization and Professor of Geography at Kentucky University. Her interest in why some places and people prosper, and others remain marginal has led to wide ranging, interdisciplinary research interests including anti-development, geopolitics, neoliberalism, trade, hegemony, militarization, security, social theory, and gender.

Sue has won research funding from the National Science Foundation for several projects, and has conducted research in Southern Mexico, the Caribbean, Ireland, and Australia. From 2012-2017, she was North American Editor of the top-ranked journal Progress in Human Geography.

From 2008-2012 she was Chair of the Department of Geography at the University of Kentucky. In 2015-16 she served as Associate Dean for International Affairs in the College of Arts and Sciences and directed the International Studies Program, a popular interdisciplinary undergraduate major.

«This third edition of Key Thinkers on Space and Place is most welcome for its efforts to enlarge the range of thinkers and scholars under scrutiny, reflecting greater diversity in discipline, geography, philosophy, race and gender, opening our eyes to thinkers in the non-Anglophone world, and offering insights into the migration of ideas.»

Prof. Lily Kong

«Key Thinkers on Space and Place is a refreshed and comprehensive collection of the current state of geography. Across 62 chapters it revisits established experts as well as brings forth new voices, theories and actions. The book - an invaluable reference work - will inspire and develop geographical curiosity and spatial imaginations for new students as well as experienced scholars.»

Prof. Lynda Johnston

«This substantially revised compendium provides engaging brief introductions to the thinking of a wide range of influential and contemporary spatial theorists. It is essential reading for students, and for anyone seeking to educate themselves about how spatiality shapes (largely) northern social, economic, political and cultural theory.»

Prof. Eric Sheppard
