PUBLICATIONS

I work in interdisciplinary ways with skills in a variety of disciplines and fields of knowledge, addressing so many topics that it seemed inappropriate to list them by subject, discipline or method.

Publications are clustered under type of work, from books to journalism and theses — listed chronologically, recent to earliest works.

Links are to pages devoted to key projects at this site, to copies of publications, to publication details and to related matter.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.
