Craig Jones


PhD Candidate


I am a PhD candidate and Associate Lecturer in Geography at Lancaster University. My research considers the ways outer space is (re)constructed through different sociocultural imaginaries and articulations, centring itself around asteroid mining as a new extractive 'frontier'. The project has engaged with both actors in the New Space Economy and Ethnofuturist artists, exploring how these futures are constructed and how they may be challenged and contested through different sociocultural positionings.
