David Bissell

David Bissell is senior lecturer in the Research School of Social Sciences at the Australian National University. He is a cultural geographer whose work combines qualitative research on embodied practices with social theory to explore the social, political and ethical consequences of mobile lives. His current research draws on cultural geography and theories of mobilities to investigate contemporary social problems involving mobility-labour relationships. His recent and forthcoming research projects are about the impact of commuting on cities; how mobile working practices are reshaping the home; and how new forms of workplace artificial intelligence are impacting on employment futures and family mobilities. He is on the editorial boards of Social and Cultural Geographies and Mobilities.
