About the Speaker

Professor Kathryn Cassidy is a political geographer and activist, whose work explores the processes and practices of bordering contemporary societies and the ways in which these are being disrupted both through collective and mundane actions.

From 2019 to 2021, Kathryn undertook research, funded by the Leverhulme Trust, which advanced theoretical debates in critical border studies by developing dis/order as a conceptual lens for analysing bordering processes and practices. This conceptual work was underpinned by an empirical study of the institutionalisation of bordering within three different parts of the UK's public sector: health care, higher education and social security.

Her current research on dis/order and abolitionism builds upon earlier work, which focused on the ways in which borders and the processes and practices through which they are (re)made have moved from the margins into the centre of contemporary social and political life. This research primarily emanated from a collaboration with colleagues from the EUBorderscapes (2012-2016) project, Professor Nira Yuval-Davis and Dr. Georgie Wemyss.  

Kathryn has wider research interests in abolitionism, geopolitics and institutional geographies. Her PhD research in Ukraine and Romania explored the alter-geopolitical lives of those living in borderland communities.
