Morgan Campbell

Profile

I am a researcher and lecturer working on issues related to cities, mobility, culture and social justice, with a geographic focus on India. Coming from an interdisciplinary background, I investigate questions related to fissures between how cities are experienced by different populations and how they are represented as meta narratives of economic production, political power, and lifestyle consumption. Additionally, I look at public transport as a form of public space in motion; agency and negotiation in the context of everyday mobility of underrepresented populations.

  • Public transport | BRT 
  • Transportation equity and justice
  • Passengering and the future of public space
