Andrea Pavoni is assistant professor at the International Summer School on Urban Ethnography at the University of Trento, and co-editor at Non Liquet [The Westminster Online Working Papers]. Andrea is mainly interested in exploring the relation between law, space, control and justice in the contemporary city. His research interests include critical legal geography, urban studies, legal theory, sociology, art and philosophy. He completed his PhD at the University of Westminster with a thesis titled Exceptional Tunings: Controlling Urban Events. His current project focuses the mutual relation between urban space and dissensus, looking at how urban space allow for, modify or prevent the expression of dissensus, and how dissensus in turn affect and modify its social and material form.  He recently edited with Andrea Mubi Brighenti the 35° issue of Lo Squaderno, on the ‘Urban Invisibles’.
