Dr WANG, June
王珺
PhD (HKU), B.Arch (Tongji), Registered Architect (Class I, PRC), HKIA qualification
Associate Professor
My research lies at the intersection of urban geography and cultural politics, centring on state-society relations amidst the cultural turn of Asian cities. My long-term research interest dwells on the always on-going process of (re-)territorialisation in the making of cultural cities, that is, how the intertwined political and economic logics put human and non-human things on the move, resulting in ceaseless re-configuration of territory, economy and workforce. I strive to construct a conceptual reading on territorialisation along two lines of inquiries:

  • Territorialisation of creative labour and precarity.

  • Territoriality, networked expertise and assembled sovereignty
