Prof. Graham's research draws on critical social and urban theory to address some of the key challenges facing our rapidly urbanizing world. His focus, specifically, is on five related areas:
* The vertical aspects of cities, geography and urban life;
* The politics of urban infrastructure, materiality and mobility;
* The urban aspects of social and digital surveillance;
* The links between cities and digital media; and
* The politics of urban security and the 'new military urbanism'

A wide range of Professor Graham's Powerpoint presentations is available at slideshare.
Influence and Impacts
In developing these themes, Prof. Graham's work has had a major influence on a wide variety of recent literatures and research trends in the social sciences and beyond. This influence has straddled three areas.
First, Prof. Graham's latest work, culminating in the Verso book Vertical: The City From Satellites to Bunkers (October, 2016), is contributing much to fully three-dimensional re-theorisation of the politics of cities and geography. A full PDF of the book is available here. Through a series of interlinked chapters exploring everything from satellites, drones and helicopters through air pollution crises, skyscrapers, elevators and housing towers to bunkers, mines, basements and sewers, Vertical reimagines urban life fully into three-dimensions above, within and below ground. It explores what it means to be above or below in today’s rapidly urbanising world. As humans excavate deep into the earth, build ever-higher into the skies, and saturate airspaces and inner orbits with a myriad of vehicles, sensors and platforms, the book reveals like never before how might we understand the remarkable verticalities of our world?
A video of the U.S. launch of the book, a conversation with Keller Easterling at New York's Skyscraper Museum in November 2016, is available here. Slides and audio from a public lecture about the book at Newcastle are here. The book is also receiving excellent reviews. Book of the week in the Guardian for the week ending November 26th, Vertical was also amongst the books of the year for 2016 for both the Observer and the Financial Times (the latter is only accessible to subscribers). Vertical has also been featured on BBC Radio 4's Thinking Allowed and reviewed in Nature, the Financial Times (subscription only), the Library Journal, the Spectator magazine and the influential Deterritorial Investigations blog. The book is currently being translated into Korean and Turkish; reviews have also appeared in Spanish at Rebellion web magazine and Italian at Pagina99 magazine.
A discussion of the book's chapter about how humans increasingly make their own geology appeared on the popular 99% invisible blog on September 13th, 2016. (See also the presentation here). The influential global research and activism NGO the Transnational Institute has also published a version of the chapter on the politics of drones as an interactive 'long read'-style essay under the title of Robot Imperium. A keynote on the book's chapter on elevators, presented at the Networked Urban Mobilities Conference in 2014 in Copenhagen, is available here.
Second, Prof. Graham's research is playing an important role as scholars from across the social and urban studies and activist communities seek to address the ways in which questions of security, war and political violence now permeate deeply into the everyday spaces, sites and circulations of urban life on a planet where 75% of the population is expected to live in urban areas by 2050. Most important here is the book Cities Under Siege: The New Military Urbanism (Verso, March, 2010) -- a major international and interdisciplinary exposé of the tightening connections across the world between urban life, militarism and security politics. The book was entered for the 2010 Orwell Prize for Political Writing.
The paperback version of the book, published in November 2011, was Nicholas Lezard's paperback of the week in the Guardian on December 13th, 2013. "Look, you're just going top have to read this book," Lezard says in his review. "After a while you begin to wonder whether books like this will be allowed to be published much longer." The Glasgow Herald, meanwhile, called the book an "agit-prop classic." "Superb..." Edwin Heathcote writes in the, Financial Times. "Graham builds on the writings of Mike Davis and Naomi Klein who have attempted to expose the hidden corporate and military structures behind everyday life.”
Since publication, Cities Under Siege has been translated into French, Swedish, Turkish, Greek,Polish, Arabic and Brazilian/Portuguese editions. A web TV debate on the latter book's ideas about 'new military urbanism' is available (Portuguese). Online lectures about the book are available from LSE, the Glasgow School of Art, Columbia University's Networked Architecture Lab, and a 2013 conference in Talinn, Estonia. Prof. Graham can be heard talking about the book's themes on BBC Radio 4's Thinking Allowed Programme, 10th March, 2010 and on the 9th January 2012. An in-depth interview to mark the publication of the Brazilian edition of the book was published by the O. Estado de S.Paulo newspaper on the 8th of October, 2016 (Portuguese).
Cities Under Siege has had major impacts across the world's newspapers and activist networks. The daily Democracy Now TV show in the United States featured two discussions on the book, and interviews with Prof. Graham, in November 2011 (here and here) at the heights of the Occupy protests there. Chicago's influential 'Worldview' programme at the WBEZ radio station also ran a feature on the book on March 13th, 2012.
Other journalistic discussions influenced by the book include The Guardian's analysis of the rise of armed robots in warfare, the Cape Town Mail and Guardian's treatment of killer drones, the Huffington Post's discussion of the militarization of London ahead of the 2012 Olympics, and the Associated Press' discussion of the London Olympics. Prof. Graham's cover-story on the crackdown associated with the London Olympics in the Guardian's G2 in March, 2012 also drew on the book.
Finally, Prof. Graham's individual and collaborative work has been important to the resurgence of research on the politics of infrastructure in cities and the proliferation of 'splintered' styles of urban development (the term was coined in Prof. Graham's highly influential 2001 book with Simon Marvin, Splintering Urbanism). A more recent book, an edited collection through Routledge, New York, is Disrupted Cities: When Infrastructures Fail. It is the first book to look in detail at how the failure, disruption and destruction of key urban infrastructures -- communications, transport, energy, water -- impact on cities and urban life. A review is now available from Public Works, Management and Policy. Prof. Graham's work on infrastructure has featured in the 2011 film Bundled, Buried and Behind Closed Doors.
Prof. Graham's most recent collaborative book project on urban infrastructure, Infrastructural Lives (with Colin McFarlane) draws together a range of cutting-edge essays which focus on how modern urban life is necessarily maintained by huge completes of infrastructure.
