Charity Edwards

Charity Edwards is a lecturer in Architecture and Urban Planning & Design at Monash University’s Faculty of Art, Design & Architecture, and an architect-geographer who collaborates with artists and scientists to create objects, environments and urban strategy.

Her research highlights the more-than-human impacts of urbanisation at the scale of the planet, and she foregrounds the long-disregarded space of the ocean in particular. She is currently investigating how urban processes extend into the Southern Ocean and manifest through increasingly autonomous underwater technologies.

Charity is also a member of the Afterlives of Cities research collective, which brings together expertise in architecture, design, astrophysics, and speculative fiction to recover futures through civic creative practice.
