More About the Author

I am a Geographer who has visited half of the world's countries. I was educated at the Universities of Hull (BA Hons Geography, 1st class, 1992) and Bristol (PhD, 1995 - supervised by Sir Nigel Thrift), and work at Swansea University in the United Kingdom. At weekends you will find me mountain biking in Wales' mountains and forests.

In Urban Studies, my research on poststructuralist cities has initiated a 'post-topographical turn' in urban studies. My research has been reported on extensively in the world's print media. I have been invited to speak about cities around the world, most recently to Kazan in Russia, and to Bogotá and Medellín in Colombia. I was interviewed about global cities for Colombian TV. My research papers are among the most highly-cited in the world - my latest IJURR (2014) paper is ISI Highly-Cited. Current research is focused on the unravelling of control in the global economy with funded fieldwork in São Paulo and London; the editing of a major book - The Companion to Urban Studies (Routledge); the completion of a research monograph on Poststructuralist Cities; and, Santander funded research on sentient cities and the socio- technical in Rio de Janeiro.

I have been fascinated by Baudrillard's philosophy for more than a quarter of a century. I am the author of numerous articles on Baudrillard's oeuvre, and I am the editor of The Baudrillard Dictionary (Edinburgh University Press, 2010), Jean Baudrillard: Fatal Theories (Routledge, 2009), 'Baudrillard Redux' (Special Issue of Cultural Politics, 2011), Jean Baudrillard: from Hyperreality to Disappearance: Uncollected Interviews (EUP, 2015), and am an editorial board member of the International Journal of Baudrillard Studies. I am currently completing more books, including Jean Baudrillard: Selected Contemporary Writings (Sage). I organized the first major UK conference on Baudrillard's work in 2006 (4-6 September), and was interviewed in 2014 about Baudrillard for a South Korean TV documentary.

Product Description


The Baudrillard Dictionary challenges for the first time every received idea we may have had about Baudrillard, establishing him as one of the most substantial and visionary philosophers of our era... A revelation. --Sylvere Lotringer, Professor Emeritus, Columbia University and founder of Semiotext(e)

This is a very useful book, and gives insight into most of Baudrillard's concepts. Anyone who is working seriously on Baudrillard should have it on the shelves.
