Phil Hubbard

@ King’s College London

Phil Hubbard is Professor of Urban Studies at King’s College London. Over 25 years his work has engaged with issues of urban inclusion and exclusion with particular reference to the marginalisation of queer identities in the city. This has been especially evident in a string of publications concerning the urban regulation of sex work in Europe and beyond. His work has hence made important connections between queer and urban theory, showing that such studies of sexuality and space need to encompass examination of heterosexualities in the plural. His publications include ‘Sex and the city: geographies of prostitution in the urban West’ (Ashgate, 1999, reprinted by Routledge 2019) and ‘Cities and Sexualities’ (Routledge, 2011)
