Writer and Critic / Freelance
Over the years Iain Chambers has developed interdisciplinary and intercultural work on popular musics and metropolitan cultures. More recently he has transmuted this line of research into a series of postcolonial analyses of the formation of the modern Mediterranean.
Among his recent publications are Mediterranean Crossings. The Politics of an Interrupted Modernity (2008), Postcolonial Interruptions, Unauthorised Modernities (2017), Mediterraneo Blues (2020), and, with Marta Cariello, La Questione Mediterranea (2019).
Formerly at the University of Naples, ‘Orientale’, he is now an independent writer and critic, and blogs at: https://mediterranean-blues.blog
