Phil Hubbard is Professor of Urban Studies in the Department of Geography at King’s College London. He is interested in the ways that urban processes produce social inequalities, with a particular focus on the way that sexuality, gender and class intersect to determine the place of sex work in the city. He has written on geographies of prostitution in the UK, Australia, France, Sweden and the Netherlands, particularly focusing on community opposition to street sex work, and has also completed ESRC sponsored work on the regulation of sexual entertainment venues and ‘lap dance’ venues. His books include ‘Sex and the City: geographies of prostitution in the urban West’ (1999) and ‘Cities and Sexualities’ (2013).
