Ashley Marshall, M.A. English, B.A. Hons. English/Cultural Studies and Critical Theory. Ashley Marshall's research critiques how power, economics, and politics influence social change while advocating for imagination and creativity as alternatives to neoliberal market logics. Her recent project, Home x Work, has been praised for its phenomenological originality. This project does not perceive the city as a blank campus upon which we can experiment, but rather, aims to use collaborative measures to dissect and render visible the various social and material flows that both (re)produce hegemonic power structures and dismantle them. A full-time professor of communications at Durham College, Ashley Marshall is continuing to develop projects rooted in place-based pedagogy, urbanism, public intellectualism and equity.
