Title: All the women are white, all the Blacks are men, but what about the greens? – an intersectional analysis of UK environmentalism
My project works to further flesh out the links and gaps amongst de/postcolonialism, feminism, environmentalism, and social movement studies. Through interrogating the experiences, views, and praxis of social movement actors, my research aims to increase transnational learning amongst environmentalists in relation to inclusive action and philosophies of environmentalism.
My research is funded through the CHASE Doctoral Training Partnership from the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

EU level renewable electricity and renewable fuels legislation
Albina Lindt’s thesis is dedicated to the study of EU-level renewable electricity and renewable fuels (mainly biofuels) legislation, encompassing the directives of 2001, 2003, 2009 and the ILUC directive. Within this policy area, she focuses on the formulation stage within the policy cycle. This implies a detailed reconstruction of policy-making processes aimed at stipulation of target values and definitions for renewable energy sources – two interrelated policy issues at the core of the directives. Carla pays special attention to the application of policy formulation tools, such as future scenario modelling, for the purpose of decision making. Being more generally interested in the different inputs of EU institutions into the policy formulation process, the overarching goal of the thesis is to assess the driving forces behind the legislative outcome.
Immigration and Rights: Towards a performative theory of citizenship
Peter Rees research is entitled ‘Immigration and Rights: Towards a performative theory of citizenship’. He holds a BA in English from the University of Sussex and an MSc in Social and Political Theory (Distinction) from Birkbeck, University of London. His work is situated at the intersection between the fields of contemporary political theory and citizenship studies, with particular interests in post-foundational and post-structuralist thought, theories of performativity and critical migration studies. His current research explores the relationship between universal (human) rights and citizenship through an empirical focus on contemporary migration and conditions of rightlessness. His research is funded by the Economic and Social Research Council.
Connections of social debates in the global South with radical environmental and economic thoughts in the global North
Struggling for another form of life: Provincialising the Degrowth debate
Katharina’s thesis connects contemporary social debates in the global South, in this case Latin America, with radical environmental and economic thought in the global North. Over the last decades, Latin America has witnessed an upsurge in counter-hegemonic social theories and movements in response to neo-liberalism. Some of these are based on the emancipation of indigenous peoples and belief systems. In Ecuador, the mainstreaming of indigenous rights has been marked by constitutional change based on Andean cosmovisions such as sumak kawsay/buen vivir (good living in Quechua and Spanish). These require the subordination of the economy to human well-being and nature. Similarly, the Degrowth school of thought aims to re-situate the economy within planetary boundaries yet can be said to have limited relevance to non-industrialised countries. Her thesis aims to broaden the ontological and epistemological horizon of the Degrowth debate by considering whether social theories from Latin America could provide an ethical and normative framework for a decolonial politics of Degrowth.
Katharina Richter is a PhD Candidate at the Department of Politics and International Relations, Goldsmiths. As an associate lecturer, she has taught on a variety of topics relating to political theory and international relations, with a focus on colonialism and the making of the modern world. Her research interests include political economy, degrowth, climate change, ecology, alternatives to development and decolonisation. Previously, she has had a post at the Reiner Lemoine Institute in Berlin, co-authoring a study on decentralised renewable energy systems. She holds a MSc in Ecological Economics from the University of Edinburgh.

Motivations of participants in violence at sporting events in the Balkans
In an article published in 1986, Dunning, et al. outlined some of the sociological reasons one might analyse to help explain the phenomenon of football violence. One reason, they argue, is economic inequality. When football spectators act out in a violent manner, it is a “reassertion of social control by the lower or rough working class in the face of the widening gap between the rich and the poor.” This project seeks to identify the motivations of those that participate in violent action at sporting events in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina in order to determine whether or not they differ from the motivations of their fathers.
However, the research also examines the lack of frequent incidents at another popular sport in the nations in questions, basketball. Indeed, in order to achieve a fuller, more complete profile of the sport in these nations, one would have to endeavour to include basketball. So then, in seeking to solve this particular puzzle, Keith asks the following question: “What is the socioeconomic profile of football and basketball fans in Serbia, Croatia and Bosnia & Herzegovina and how does that inform violence and violent political rhetoric in the respective nations?"

My research project will shed light on the nature of neoliberalism through a critical chronological examination of the ideology in Puerto Rico from 1980 to 2016
“Neoliberalism and Puerto Rico from 1980-2016” (Working title)
John Paul Belk is a M.Phil/Ph.D. candidate in Politics. His research is centered around political theory and political economy. Within these main areas, he mainly focuses on topics dealing with neoliberalism, debt, coloniality, governmentality, and discourse. Additionally, his work explores the political history of the Caribbean, Puerto Rico, and the U.S.
My research project will shed light on the nature of neoliberalism through a critical chronological examination of the ideology in Puerto Rico from 1980 to 2016. From this, I will extrapolate a precise conceptual understanding of how neoliberalism has behaved in the island, and settle on a workable definition of the ideology itself, contributing to the conversation about neoliberalism at large. My project will highlight how the ideology shifts and molds to different legal-political realities, how the island’s (post) colonial status has played a pivotal role in regards to neoliberalism, how neoliberalism shaped the state by way of public policy, discourse, and governance, and what its effects of neoliberalism on the island are today.

Nils is researching the rise of platforms and the financial infrastructures that facilitated it. He is also the PhD Rep for the current academic year.
Thesis Title & Summary:
My thesis explores the rise of platforms and the financial infrastructures that facilitated it. It seeks to question larger narratives about contemporary capitalist dynamics by building from an analysis of the concrete settings for the creation of capital. I focus on the relationship between venture capitalists and entrepreneurs, and the extent to which techniques of economic valuation link the construction of technological futures with present-day contestations of power.

A critique of the philosophy of political violence
Thesis Title & Summary:
The Politics of Affect: A new form of Violence Within the Emerging Post-Soviet Democracy.
In this research, I propose a critique of the philosophy of political violence, which – in my view – suffers from highly partisan and equivocal terminology. The thesis will maintain that the typical analyses of violence (W. Benjamin, H. Arendt, M. Foucault etc.), which are often based on the ready-made conceptual distinctions of friend-enemy and institutional-individual, are not sufficient in describing the modern-day politics of affect. Throughout the research, the collapse of the Soviet Union will be used as an example of recent history, which supports my thesis about the philosophy of violence. Even though relatively peaceful, the 1989 revolutions radically changed the ensuing physical, economic, legal and psychological interactions of everyday Post-Socialist politics. For this reason, the 1989 revolutions will be interpreted as extremely violent events insofar as they managed to drastically transform the daily lives of post-Soviet individuals. This research will thus undertake to rigorously document the waves of political events (affects) that made the period of ‘glasnost’ and the ensuing 1989 revolutions so effective (violent). This analytic approach will allow me to interpret violence not merely as a manifestation of a destructive force but also as an index of a long-term sociopolitical transformation. With this in mind, G. Deleuze and F. Guattari’s philosophy will be referenced in order to describe the eruptions of nationalism in post-Soviet states in the 1990s as a collection of powerful ‘refrains’, which introduced new physical restrictions on citizens as well as new legal and ideological regulations. The sudden introduction of democracy and free-market economy in the post-communist Eastern Europe – even though a positive event – will be interpreted as an extended and extremely violent procedure, which forced the now autonomous post-Soviet states to assume new political responsibilities, gain new international allies and formulate new interpretations of their respective cultural histories.

Vanessa’s work radiates around topics of urban and environmental transformations, critical ecology, postcolonial theory, the Middle East and the desert.
Thesis: Egypt’s Desert Capital
Egypt relied for most of its 5000-year old history on the Nile river and its fertile green valley.
Only in recent decades did the Sahara Desert that spans the vast majority of the country’s surface, turn into a space of tremendous wealth, investment and speculation: new cities and gated compounds designed to expand the living space of millions of urbanites, a brand-new capital city, new resort towns along the coastal shorelines, new and expanding industrial zones for retail, manufacturing and trade, the expansion of extractive industries and mining zones as well as major land deals for some of the continent’s largest wind and solar parks supplying for an ever-growing (carbon-free) energy demand.
The research looks at the legal, political and economic processes involved in reconfiguring the material-discursive structures of the desert landscapes from ‘wasteland’ frontier into tradable, ecological capital.
It sheds light onto forms of administration, land rights and ownership, technologies of geo-engineering and planning, labour practices, questions of sovereignty and territoriality, finance and political ecology of natural resources, the local military economy and its tools.
Ultimately, it tries to address questions upon the rights of access to and use of natural resources, their capitalization and who benefits from these processes.

“DECOLONIZING THE SELF; Decolonial AestheSis (Mirror Touch Synaesthesia) and The Photobook Phenomenon as Participatory Praxis”
My research aims to conceive an epistemology of Decolonization based on Synaesthesia. Reinventing the language of politics? Being a Synaesthete, inspired by the social movements and the Voices of the Global South, based on the shift from episteme to practice and on the togetherness of academic and artistic practices and anatomies I shall question Modernity / Modernity Coloniality and the narrative of development. Proposing an Alive-New way of thinking and doing politics I shall activate an autoethnographical narrative and I shall introduce an organic option of PhD formation through the construction (infrastructure) and interrelation of social spaces (Photobook Phenomena) and their actual somatopoiesis – their very birth / creation / production and publication / distribution / circulation.
I am deeply interested in the role of “The Photobook Phenomenon” in contemporary Visual Culture. I am committed to its Social Responsibility, Ethics, Dynamics, Dignity and its Revolutionary Positionality throughout the global democratic decolonial struggles in an era of a tremendous rising of fascism and racism, in an era of extreme inequality.
I shall propose a personal creative synthesis and organization of “The Photobook as a synaesthetic woman body - gaze” based on the interaction between “Personal Documentary Photography” and the Everyday Life Praxis of “Decolonizing the Camera”.

Despoina Penny Demertzi (born 1980, Athens / Alexandroupolis Greece) is a photographer / visual researcher. Penny is a Synaesthete. Based on her synaesthetic idiosyncrasy and physicality, based on synaesthetic translation and coordination she expresses herself – her work via three interrelated and inter-updated to interrupted levels (porous): visual, sound, “written – hand written”. She communicates herself via Photography – Cartography / Counter-mapping (the synaesthetic woman body - gaze as the border), Art Therapy, Sound Art (soundscapes) - Singing Voices, Dance, Social Choreography, Visual Poetry, Drawing and Performance (intonation of performative and archival to un-archival modes).
She is interested in the organic interrelation between synaesthesia, empathy and class consciousness; in the lived synaesthetic experience of the classroom, the museum and the street. Her work is situated between the political, creative practices and the philosophical; between the cognitive and the psychopolitical.
