Simon Springer is Associate Professor in the Department of Geography at the University of Victoria, Canada. His research explores the political and social exclusions that neoliberalism has engendered, particularly in the context of contemporary Cambodia, where he emphasizes the role of violence and power. He cultivates a cutting edge approach to his scholarship by foregrounding both poststructuralist critique and a radical revival of anarchist philosophy. Simon’s books include The Anarchist Roots of Geography (University of Minnesota Press, 2016), The Discourse of Neoliberalism (Rowman & Littlefield, 2016), Violent Neoliberalism (Palgrave, 2015), and Cambodia’s Neoliberal Order (Routledge, 2010). Simon serves as Managing Editor of ACME: An International E-Journal for Critical Geographies and for the Transforming Capitalism book series published by Rowman & Littlefield.
