Matthew Wingfield

Postdoctoral fellow, Stellenbosch University

My research has broadly been focussed on social movements and questions of 'justice'. Ranging from spatial justice to environmental justice, I have done research on groups that have had to strategically leverage a range of resources to actualise South Africa's progressive constitutional rights. I have worked with groups such as Reclaim the City, the Climate Justice Charter Movement and the Philippi Horticultural Area Campaign, and in doing so, developed scholarship around concepts of 'slow activism', and more recently on temporality as a lens.
