The interdisciplinary collaborations among Centre members and students provide important insights and redefine the issues of urban transformation.

About the Director

I conduct research in urban anthropology and am interested in the relationship between cities and the environment in order to conceptualise the issues and challenges of an anthropology of contemporary worlds. Problematizing the themes of the transformation of work, neighbourhoods and daily life, architecture and environmental crisis allows me to reflect on contemporary urban processes and how they recompose and decompose spaces and social relations in an advanced capitalist context - in Japan, East Asia and in large urban agglomerations.
