Anna Jackman University of Reading, UK
Dr Anna Jackman is a Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Reading. Anna is a feminist political geographer interested in technological visibilities, volumes, relations and futures. Her research approaches these issues through the lens of the drone, exploring the ‘unmanning’ of everyday, urban and military life in the drone age. Anna’s Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC)-funded research project ‘Diversifying Drone Stories’ engaged with a range of stakeholders (including emergency services, lawyers, industry, local authorities, pilots, and members of the public) to explore the diverse use, perception, and impact of drones in changing UK airspace.
