Dr Charlotte Lemanski is a lecturer in the geography department at Cambridge, and a Fellow of Robinson College. Her research broadly focuses on everyday inequality in cities of the global South, and has explored this through various lenses: for example, gated communities, low-income state-subsidised housing markets, gentrification, segregation and integration, fear, security and governance. Her primary empirical focus is South Africa, with a secondary interest in India. Her current research is developing the concept of Infrastructural Citizenship as a conceptual lens through which to explore the ways in which new and long-standing practices of 'DIY urbanism' demonstrate a form of citizenship identity and practice that is not radical or confrontational, but everyday and orderly.
