Personal details

BA, MA, DPhil

My thesis, Globalization, Social Exclusion and the Discursive Localization of Poverty, combined elements of constructivist IPE with theorization of the 'social exclusion' agenda then current in UK politics. After four years as a research associate in the Geography Department at Durham University, I came to Leicester in 2001. After lecturing in the Geography Department for 10 years, I moved to the School in June 2011. In September 2014 my research on the changing nature of fiscal space featured in the critically acclaimed documentary ‘The Price we Pay’ by award-winning director Harold Crooks. Since 2008 I have extended my academic work by acting as 'spokesperson' for Swedish performance artists goldin+senneby on their ongoing project 'Headless' and through collaborations with other artists and curators. Deputy College Academic Director, College of Social Sciences Arts and Humanities.

Research

My primary research interests address the broad themes of spatiality, representation and performance. I have a particular focus on the construction of 'xenospaces' - fictional but functional spaces of exteriority, ambiguity and indeterminacy.  Empirically this embraces topics of money, offshore finance, boundaries, taxation, cartography, discourses of inclusion/exclusion/exception and visual semiotics. Most recently I have been exploring conceptual relationships between the quasi-mythical figures trickster, devil and fool and the ambiguous ‘realities’ of money.

Supervision

Angus currently supervises the following PhD students:

Mohammed Abrar (FT), Milan Gyanwali (FT)

I welcome PhD proposals around themes of, economic representation, cultural economies, performance art, intermediate spatiality and related topics.
