The Poetics of Letting Go
This book invites the reader to think about collaborative research differently.

Critical Perspectives on Work, Subjectivities and Struggles
The word ‘precarity’ is widely used when discussing work, employment or social classes.

Mobility, Control, Agency

Thinking with Gatecrashers, Cheats and Charlatans

From Thatcherism to Austerity
