Stephanie Wakefield is an urban geographer whose work explores the diverse practices and technologies of urbanism being developed today globally, both as technical phenomenon and catalysts of new kinds of life in the Anthropocene. She is currently completing a book for Open Humanities Press titled Into the Back Loop: Experimentation in Unsafe Operating Space, and a second project titled ‘Miami Forever: Urbanism in the Back Loop,’ investigating experimental practices for living with water in Miami, Florida, and the emergence of a new paradigm of ‘back loop urbanism.’
