Interests: Political Economics and Development Theory, Global Finance, Theoretical Conceptualizations of Development, Space, Place and Time. The role of history and geography. Concepts of globalization

Region: Africa and specifically South Africa.

Question: How do we understand opportunities for development in Africa and how are these opportunities limited by theoretical conceptualizations of both development and Africa as a space? How can we disable limiting and constraining theoretical conceptualizations and rework them with the goal of creating enabling and empowering theoretical conceptualizations? What inhibits this change? What role does race, sex, history, geography play in enabling/disabling theoretical frameworks for change?
