Profile

 

Research

Research Interests:

Socio-cultural relations and economic geographies, alternative economic geographies, finance and emerging markets, diverse economic practices

Roger Lee's research interests focus around the social/cultural construction of economic geographies. Of particular interest are the ways in which the norms and values of capitalism are insinuated into, and at the same time resisted in the social construction of, economic geographies at a variety of scales.
