Prof. Pauline McGuirk

Pauline McGuirk staff photoPauline McGuirk is Professor of Human Geography at the University of Wollongong. Her research focuses on urban political geography, particularly through critical studies of urban governance, its changing geographies, practices and politics, and the differential implications for urban places, communities and power. Her work traces the mediation of urban space and urban politics by state and non-state governance processes and the ways governance opens out and constrains possibilities for just and sustainable urban communities. Her current research has two strands: (i) the roles of urban actors and urban-based experiments in the governance of carbon and energy transition; and (ii) the differential assemblage of urban regeneration through diverse material practices, discourses, motivations, and affects. Theoretically her work is informed by poststructural and political economy frameworks.

Pauline is currently an Editor of Progress in Human Geography, and has been a visiting fellow at National University of Ireland (Maynooth), UBC (Vancouver), Trinity College (Dublin) and at the universities of Glasgow, Durham and Bristol.
