It’s thrilling and dream-like to be able to boast a book contract with Routledge before I have even written the book. They have offered me a contract based on the introductory chapter to my book Philosophy of the Wild City: Expanding Political Spaces. Very much looking forward to the writing process and hope to finish by mid-2025!
The video of my interdisciplinary workshop The City and the Wild is now up!

I’m very excited to announce my upcoming interdisciplinary workshop “The City and the Wild”, in collaboration with the Collegium Helveticum.
There will be keynote lectures by Jonathan Wolff (Oxford), Harini Nagendra (Bangalore), Annabel Brett (Cambridge), as well as numerous exciting inputs from researchers and artists like Sanna Lehtinen, Jonas Gillmann, Seraina Dür, Nitin Bathla etc.

Alex King on Aesthetics
What is the broader social and cultural relevance of academic aesthetics? Can it help us make out why a show seems a little flat? Or analyse for instance racial fetishes? What is the aesthetic attitude and how may one take it up? All this and more in an interview with the philosopher Alex King!
Cities and Alienation from Nature
Many of us are dreaming of a garden in these pandemic times. But why is this so? What makes us desire gardens and why do we garden at all? My newest video discusses just this.
I’m excited to be participating in this online workshop on the use of artificial intelligence in urban environments. My position paper will be up shortly.
