Monash University

Charity Edwards is a lecturer at Monash University and an architect-geographer who collaborates with artists and scientists to create objects, environments, and strategy. Her research highlights more-than-human impacts of urbanisation in remote and off-world environments. She is currently investigating how urban processes manifest in the Southern Ocean through increasingly autonomous underwater technologies. Recent academic contributions include 'The Ocean In (Planetary) Excess?’ in a 2019 special theme issue of Dialogues in Human Geography, a new entry on the ‘Urban Age’ with Prof Brendan Gleeson (University of Melbourne) for the International Encyclopaedia of Human Geography, and collaborating on the deathly natures of gold with Dr Amelia Hine in Kerb: Journal of Landscape Architecture (#28). Charity is also co-founder of The Afterlives of Cities research collective, which brings together expertise in architecture, astrophysics, and speculative fiction to recover futures through civic creative practice.
