Cities in Cyberpunk: Psychogeography, Globalisation and Literature.

My work examines how globalisation, the internet and other new technologies change the experience of walking in cities, particularly how these developments impact the lives of women and queer people. I aim to explore this through analysing works of both Cyberpunk science-fiction and Psychogeography with an emphasis on challenging the often male-centric approach of these fields. My research also hopes to take a global perspective by examining cities around the world including Hong Kong, Beijing, Tokyo, Los Angeles, London and Paris.
