Feb 2021 – Feb 2025

Doctor of Philosophy, supervised by Dr. Alistair Rider, University of St Andrews


My doctoral research explores “Anthropocene mobilities” to address the intersection of travel, mobility and ecological crises in contemporary art. Specifically, I am looking a selection of four artists born after 1980. Each of the artists engage directly with ecological themes and questions; equally, travel and mobility constitute crucial components in their artistic practice and work. Yet despite the obvious importance of those themes, art critics, academics and curators often do not discuss them in a nuanced manner. This dissertation will pursue an ecocritical approach, aligning with the trajectory of the environmental humanities. It does so by including aspects of the mobility paradigm, including mobility justice or post-growth approaches to travel and mobility as well as move beyond an anthropocentric focus by considering also the more-than-human world.
