Senior Lecturer in Human Geography, Aberystwyth University

I teach and research in the area of cultural and historical geography, focusing on the role of psychological knowledge in governing the spaces of childhood. In both past and present contexts, my work explores the way psychologised subjectivities are implicated in the governance of childhood and youth. Inspired by a Foucauldian understanding of governmentality, I have explored this relationship through a range of empirical sites, including late nineteenth and early twentieth-century American schools and playgrounds, military recreation during World War I and contemporary emotional education in the UK.
