Urban Food Mapping: Making Visible the Edible City

“Richly explored, using over 200 mapping images in 25 selected chapters, this book identifies urban food mapping as a distinct activity and area of research that enables a more nuanced way of understanding the multiple issues facing contemporary urbanism and the manyfold roles food spaces play within it. — Routledge Taylor & Francis Group

University of Brighton editors and contributors are Katrin Bohn, Dr. Mikey Tomkins (PhD honorary research fellow) and Prof. Andre Viljoen. Published March 2024.

The Pedagogies of Re-Use: The International School of ReConstruction.

“The Pedagogies of Re-Use captures the amazing digital gathering of students, academics, practitioners, and activists that happened at the International School of Re-Construction. Involving over 100 people, from countries as far apart as Brazil, Canada, Ireland, UK, Spain, Germany, Greece, UAE, and China, the participants spent two weeks working in eleven teams to consider architectural propositions responding to the current climate and ecological emergency.” — Routledge, Taylor & Francis Group.

Lead editors, Duncan Baker Brown and Graham Brooker (RCA) with contributions from several colleagues from the School of Architecture, Technology and Engineering.  In press-publication scheduled for July 2024.

Domesticity Under Siege

“Organised around four thematic sections, ‘Microbes, Animals and Insects’, ‘Human Agents’, Wars and Disasters as Agents’ and ‘Hauntings, Eeriness and the Uncanny’, chapters provide a range of approaches to the home which challenge notions of ‘haven’ and reflect major causes that have played an important role in undermining the modern home.” — Bloomsbury.

Co-Editor Terry Meade, contributor Judit Pusztazeri. First published December 2022, with a scheduled conference in 2025.
