Andrea’s research interests include the politics of heritage destruction and reconstruction, the agency of cultural memory in disputed contexts, affect and affective atmospheres, issues of sustainability and the politics of placemaking in cities. Her interdisciplinary approach aims to bring into conversation modes of analysis often kept apart to produce a more expansive, distributed and relational notion of political agency. Andrea has also worked as a journalist covering international current affairs and as a researcher at the City of Sydney. She is currently based at the Institute for Culture and Society and is working on an ARC funded research project investigating the ‘vertical turn’ in geography and the politics of density in mega-cities.
