Fraser is a PhD student at King's, interested in housing, urban popular economies, political ecology, postcolonial studies and critical urban theory.

Elsewhere, Fraser has written on young people's social infrastructure, sonic geographies, and art-based/creative methodologies. He also holds a BA in International Development from King's.

Research

Thesis title: 'Race, rent, and the politics of housing in Hounslow, West London'

Fraser's doctoral research explores landlord-tenant relationships in Hounslow, West London. Bringing strands of postcolonial and agrarian Marxist thought into conversation with literature on housing and racial capitalism, Fraser's research conceptualises rent as a ‘more-than-economic’ social relation and probes the ways situated dynamics of race and class are transformed and reproduced.
