Alida Payson

Lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies , Cardiff University
I am a lecturer in Media and Cultural Studies in JOMEC. My research interests are in everyday life, second-hand economies, and material culture. More widely, I am interested in the cultural politics of migration, gender, race, and disability, and in visual, creative and participatory research methods.

I have been working to build a network of second-hand studies researchers and practitioners. You can find more about our projects and activities on the Secondhand Cultures blog, available here: https://blogs.cardiff.ac.uk/secondhandcultures/

I recently finished a three-year project, Charity shop country: conviviality and survival in austerity Britain, funded by the Leverhulme Trust early career fellowship, and exploring how charity shops matter as sites of everyday living together and getting by in an austerity economy. Here is a recent blog post about the research - Thrift labours - Charity shops in the austerity economy

My thesis in cultural studies, also at JOMEC, entitled Feeling Together: Emotion, heritage, conviviality and politics in a changing city, follows three intergenerational groups of women and girls as they took part in arts and heritage projects to explore overlooked local women’s history in Butetown through writing, film, photography, and fashion. The thesis is framed by a critical history of Cardiff, as well as a critical interrogation of whiteness in UK heritage industries and theoretical debates on the politics of emotion. I argue for these intergenerational heritage projects as emotional performances full of important lessons on how to cope with inherited injustice and how to live together with others in the present.

I have published on the cultural politics of translation in film, emotion in migrant protest media, and the history of refugees in Wales. As part of formative interdisciplinary collaborations as a research assistant, I have also published on narratives of poverty in the media in Wales and Black and minority ethnic women’s experiences of infertility, as well as drawing as a participatory research method. Before moving to the UK and undertaking her PhD in cultural studies, I worked in the nonprofit sector in the United States on housing and food justice issues. Her academic background is in literature and the arts.

Alisa Minina Jeunemaître

Associate Professor of Marketing, EM Lyon Business School
In my research I adopt the sociocultural perspective as a framework for understanding consumption experiences, with the particular focus on globalization, consumer mobility, acculturation and consumption in digital service settings. I seek to go beyond consumer subjectivity in investigating the broader market and sociocultural dynamics that intertwine with consumer experiences, using in-depth interviews, ethnographic methods, discourse analysis and digital research in order to uncover how lived experiences of consumers are being shaped by broader macroenvironmental forces, and how consumer lifestyles emerge as a response to the challenges of their daily lives.

Alisha Gaines

Associate Professor of English, Florida State University
Alisha Gaines is the Timothy Gannon Associate Professor of English and affiliate faculty of African American Studies at Florida State University. She holds a 2009 PhD in English and a certificate in African and African American Studies from Duke University. From 2009-2011 she held a Carter G. Woodson postdoctoral fellowship in African American and African Studies at the University of Virginia. As a Co-Founder and Co-Humanities Director of the Evergreen Plantation Archaeological Field School, in 2024, Alisha won a Community Engaged Research Partnership Grant for her work on plantation tourism in Louisiana's River Parishes.

Alisha's first manuscript, "Black for a Day: White Fantasies of Race and Empathy," was published with UNC Press (Spring 2017). The project rethinks the political consequences of empathy by examining mid-to-late twentieth and twenty-first century narratives of racial impersonation enabled by the spurious alibi of racial reconciliation. "Black for a Day" constructs a genealogy of mostly White liberals who temporarily "become" Black under the alibi of racial empathy.

An award-winning educator, her interdisciplinary teaching interests include African American literature, Black Study, narratives of passing, Black Southern Studies, media and performance studies, and Black queer theory.

A student of Black Souths, Alisha is currently writing her second manuscript, "Children of the Plantationocene," on Black American origin stories, what we collectively inherit from the plantation, and slavery reenactments.

Alistair Auffret

Senior Lecturer in Landscape Ecology, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences
I mostly teach landscape ecology and field botany for undergraduate students. At the post-graduate level, I develop and lead courses in using the R environment to handle data and perform GIS analyses.

I'm interested in the role of humans in determining changes in biodiversity and distributions over time. In particular, I want to know changes in landscape and climate during the past century have shaped patterns of biodiversity today. Using historical and present-day maps and species inventories, I look at the changes in biodiversity that have already happened in response to environmental change, with the hope that that knowledge can be used to conserve biodiversity now and in the future.

I am also very interested in the dispersal of plant species in time and space, and how this is driven directly and indirectly by humans through management and landscape structure. Seeds can move in any number of ways related to human activity, while dormancy in the seed bank can act to buffer biodiversity during times of unsuitable conditions. I think that understanding how species move in time and space will help us to understand their responses to environmental pressures and conservation actions.

Allison Anderson

Lecturer in tourism planning and development, CQUniversity Australia

Tropical cities are my research area, especially how many are developing from being the 'supporting act' to the 'main event' for tourists. My research looks particularly at how tropical cities are innovating their urban landscapes to move beyond the traditional huts, colonial-style architecture, beaches and palm trees and emerge as complex and cosmopolitan sites of tourist and resident activity.

I recently submitted my PhD through James Cook University on Urban design and tourism in the tropics. I have worked as a tourism research and development consultant and strategic planner for a number of years, and hold a BSc (Hons) (Geography) from Victoria University of Wellington, NZ (1998).
