About my project
My current project is called Cultures of Urban Surveillance. It´s designed to challenge and test assertions (including my own!) about the increasing ubiquity of surveillance, to examine it in different urban cultural contexts around the world. For the next stage of my project, ‘Surveillance and Public Safety in the Global City: The Case of Tokyo’, I will be going back to Japan for ten months, starting in June 2013, and working with Professor Kiyoshi Abe of Kwansei Gakuin University. We’ve jsut got news that we have funding from the Japan Society for the Promotion of Science (JSPS), so I will be going as a JSPS Fellow.
