Johnny Rodger is a writer, critic, and Professor of Urban Literature at The Glasgow School of Art. His research aims at the opening of a new area of cross-disciplinary enquiry which brings together literary analysis with the critical techniques of the political and social sciences to examine the spaces inhabited by society, and designed by artists, architects and urbanists.
He has worked together with the composers and animators on a series of music theatre collaborations involving, text, image and music. In 2011 Vanishing Boundaries was performed by the National Youth Orchestra of Scotland in Manchester and at the Glasgow Music and Film Festival. He makes regular contributions to architectural press, and also appears regularly on BBC radio arts and national TV programmes. He is a founding editor (2001) of The Drouth (www.thedrouth.org) Scotland’s literary arts quarterly.
