Friederike Landau-Donnelly

Radboud Universiteit, Nijmegen, Netherlands

Friederike is a political theorist and urban sociologist. She currently works as an Assistant Professor for Cultural Geography in the Netherlands. Her research interests lie at the intersection of political and spatial theories of conflict. She conducts empirically grounded research on mo(ve)ments of artistic activism and contested public spaces. As part of her conflict-oriented understanding of politics, Friederike constantly wrestles with ghosts that visit her academic and everyday life, and as a result, writes poetry, mostly on Sunday afternoon walks.
