Ella Harris

Ella Harris is a postdoctoral researcher in the Sociology Department at Goldsmiths University. Prior to this, Ella worked as a research assistant, in the Geography Department at Royal Holloway University, on a collaborative project on pop-up social housing. She completed a PhD in Cultural Geography at Royal Holloway University in 2017.

Ella’s research focuses on urban space-time and the affective dimensions of precarity. She is particularly interested in “compensatory” ways of living in cities in the current climate of recession and austerity. Ella also works with creative digital methods and her PhD project experimented with the methodological values of interactive documentary (i-Docs) for exploring urban space-time and its politics. She has published widely on subjects including the cultural geographies of precarity, pop-up culture and pop-up housing, immersive cinema and interactive documentary.

Do you have a story to tell?

If you have a Crisis Culture story or project that you would like to share on this site then we would really love to hear from you.

Whilst this website provides an overview of the academic project called Re-imagining Crisis: Pop-up Cultures and Precarious Lives in Austerity London the book contains both more detail and depth. The book will be published this year and will be available to buy from the publisher’s online bookstore.
