citat My research currently emphasizes contemporary urban studies from a comparative perspective. The cases on which I focus are large cities in sub-Saharan Africa and post-industrial cities of the American midwest. citat
Stephen Marr is a senior lecturer in Peace and Conflict Studies. I received my PhD in Political Science from the University of Florida in 2008, specializing in Comparative Politics, Political Theory and African Studies. My dissertation examined the relationship between formal, state-led urban planning techniques and the everyday uses of space in Gaborone, the capital city of Botswana. Currently, I am at work on a long-term comparative urban studies project that seeks to place African-focused approaches to urban theory at the center of a rethinking of contemporary urban theory. The project is entitled, "Social Infrastructure and the Politics of Everyday Insecurity in Lagos and Detroit: Rethinking Urbanity in a Time of Crisis" Other teaching and research interests include: the politics of globalization, urban studies, African politics, theories of popular culture, critical theory, and cultural studies. Prior to coming to Malmö, I taught at Monmouth University, Haverford College, and Linnaeus University. Previously I have held research affiliations at the University of Gothenburg's Centre for Globalization and Development, and the University of Toronto's Cites Centre.
