Ihnji Jon is a Lecturer in Human Geography at the School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University. I am an interdisciplinary scholar drawing on human geography, environment planning, and political philosophy. I am committed to expanding our discussions on political ecology with and beyond distributive justice, by bringing in feminist relational approach to identity, politics, and space. I am currently exploring practical purchase of poststructuralist political philosophy, inclusive of post-essentialist feminism and postcolonial thought.

My current research programme includes green gentrification, spatial consequences of circular economy (waste), and politics of knowledge-making in post-secular, diasporic urban worlds. I believe that local culture and customary practices are the living carriers of human history and collective wisdom, and our contemporary urban challenges—navigating the waters of economism and ecologism—cannot and should not ignore their important everyday spatial presence.
Prior to this post, I was a Lecturer in International Urban Politics at the University of Melbourne; and a Chateaubriand Fellow at École Normale Supérieure (Paris Ulm). I completed my interdisciplinary PhD at the University of Washington (Seattle; planning and geography), and master’s degree at Sciences Po Paris (urban governance and politics).
I am the author of the book Cities in the Anthropocene: New Ecology and Urban Politics (Pluto Press, 2021), which a reviewer called "a thoughtful and compelling argument for an anti-essentialist ecology that links environmental concerns with inequality and centers the necessary political action in the fertile complexity of cities".
