Johnny Rodger portrait

Johnny Rodger

Johnny Rodger is a writer, critic, and Reader in Urban Literature at the Glasgow School of Art. 

His research consists of enquiry published internationally in two aspects: on the one hand literary and critical writing, and on the other architecture and urbanism. The thesis which runs through all his work is that literary and critical writing has a direct, specific and particular influence on civil and political, and ultimately spatial formations. 
He has published several books of fiction –including Redundant (1998), g haun(s) Q (1996), and The Auricle (1995)-- and critical works like the recent Tartan Pimps: Gordon Brown, Margaret Thatcher and the New Scotland (2010), Fickle Man: Robert Burns in the 21st Century (2009), The Red Cockatoo: James Kelman and the Art of Commitment(2011), and the monograph Gillespie, Kidd & Coia 1956-87 (2007).
