IMG_9218.jpgStephanie Wakefield is an urban geographer and Urban Studies Foundation Research Fellow at Florida International University. Her work explores the diverse practices and technologies of resilient urbanism as both technical phenomenon and catalysts of new kinds of life in the Anthropocene. Her book Anthropocene Back Loop: Experimentation in Unsafe Operating Space, which explores the present moment as a time of transformation, collapse, and potential, is forthcoming from Open Humanities Press. She is working now on a second book project titled Miami Forever? Urbanism in the Back Loop, investigating experimental practices for living with water in Miami, Florida and through this the potential emergence of a new paradigm of ‘back loop urbanism.’ swakefie@fiu.edu
