William Monteith

Senior Lecturer in Human Geography, Queen Mary University of London

Dr. William Monteith is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Geography at Queen Mary, University of London. He obtained his PhD at the School of International Development at UEA in 2016 based on an ethnographic study of socioeconomic life in a central marketplace in Kampala, Uganda. Will is interested in what it means to work in contexts in which people’s labour is not valued by the state or capitalist economy. His research explores subjective experiences of work, hustle and ‘make do’ at the margins of capitalist economies; the relationships, politics and places produced by these experiences, and the possibilities they provide for realising more just and inclusive economic geographies.
