Charlotte works on the sociospatial dimensions of insurgency, identity, labour, logistics, empire, capital and the market.
Charlotte runs the theory module for MA City Design, which explores Marxist-Feminist, Post- and Decolonial thought as-manifest through grassroots political campaigns, struggles, and institutions in London today. The aim is to develop an understanding of the multi-faceted and intersecting conditions, perspectives and subjectivities that make up these struggles to build critical proximity- and critical solidarity frameworks that actively support the sites and subjects of research.
Charlotte also teaches theory for MA Environmental Architecture, with a similar methodological approach to ecological issues, mutual aid / kinship structures and the Green New Deal as manifest through grassroots political movements.
Having graduated from study in the UK, Ahmedebad, Delft and Venice, Charlotte has worked for Cooking Sections on the politics of food and resource extraction, Novara Media on visual and spatial direction, and muf architecture/art on feminist and socially-engaged spatial interventions. She has also taught at Brookes University, Goldsmiths University and Central St Martins School of Art.
School, Centre or Area
Charlotte is committed to mutualist, decolonial and feminist research and solidarity practices.
Charlotte also lives on a boat that she fitted out from scratch, so she can plumb and wire and build a bit.
Current and recent projects
Currently, she is completing a PhD on the ongoing Rojavan revolution in Kurdistan, thinking through struggle and solidarity as a from of reproductive (spatial) labour and developing methodological frameworks of engagement that speak to the decolonial (and) feminist principles of the revolution itself.
