Primary Expertise -

Research Interest

I've done work on the moral geographies of fair trade focusing specifically on the sorts of artefacts and discourses moblised in fair trade networks to make ethical connections between producers and consumers. More recent work has focused on the changing political economies of fair trade supply with the mainstreaming of fair trade foods in the UK and how this is altering the representations of fair trade and its political outcomes. Other work is looking at the role of celebrities in shifting the embodiments of fair trade networks from farmers to global mega-stars.
