I’m a writer interested in struggle within, against and beyond this (and any) present. My book Rethinking Utopia: Place, Power, Affect was published by Routledge in 2017. Since 2016 I’ve been a member of the Out of the Woods collective. I also make music and have worked on arts projects.

I work part time for LU Arts at Loughborough University, where I work with the University’s art collection; and organise events for Radar, its contemporary arts programme.

I live in Nottingham, UK and can be contacted on dmbell85@gmail.com. I’m available for commissions and am open to collaboration/suggestion/conspiration.

(I am not a Professor of Geography at the University of Leeds.)
