Research interests

Mia is an international postgraduate student from Canada whose work explores materiality, place-making, and vernacular practice.  Her PhD project considers everyday shop-keeping as a curatorial exercise and focuses on London’s ad hoc consumption spaces – like pound shops, corner shops, and souvenir stands.  (See the projects tab for further details and the project website here.)  The project weaves together her academic and professional backgrounds in urban planning, fine and applied arts, and community engagement.  Mia's work is funded by the Social Science and Humanities Research Council of Canada, Royal Holloway, and the Department of Geography.
