Dr Christopher Maughan


I am an Early Career Fellow at the Institute of Advanced Study (IAS) researching urban food systems and cultures. I am specifically interested in exploring the obstacles (cultural, infrastructural, socio-technical, policy-related, or otherwise) currently preventing the mainstreaming of urban community agroecology. I am also a practitioner of urban gardening: I help to manage three community gardens across Coventry and run the community food project, 'Food Union' for the Pod (a Coventry City Council mental health and community arts service).

I completed my PhD in 2015 which examined the cultural representation of environmental activism, with a specific emphasis on agricultural sites of resistance.
