Dimitra Spanou is a PhD candidate at the Department of Human Geography since July 2015. She holds a Master’s Degree in Urban and Regional Planning and a Diploma in Architecture, both completed at the National Technical University of Athens. Her broad research interests lie in urban politics and contestation under austerity as well as in feminist critiques of political economy. In particular, her work focuses on the repercussions of the austerity-based management of the crisis on urban realities and the articulation of collective responses from below, as processes that depend on gender, class and other categories that organize subjectivities.
She is member of the editorial committee of the Greek online feminist magazine Φύλο Συκής / fylosykis.gr and of Encounter Athens. Since October 2016 her research is supported by a scholarship from the Rosa Luxemburg Foundation.
