J.K. Fowler is an adjunct professor, writer, doctoral candidate at the European Graduate School and audio engineer currently living in Brooklyn, N.Y. He is the Founding Editor of the nomadic sojourns creative collective, a collective of writers and artists that aims to boldly and creatively explore movement through myriad fields.
He lived in Lesotho for a few years and in Cape Town, South Africa for two years following that while completing a semester of study in US and South Africa comparative whiteness studies in the Sociology department at the University of Cape Town. Not long after he returned to the States, he wrote, designed and published a poetry book compiling poems written while in South Africa entitled Argot. In mid-May he traveled to New York City, camped out in Harlem on a whim and not long after, Brooklyn, where he has remained until now with a few more stints in Cape Town mixed in.
He obtained his M.A. in International Affairs at The New School with a thesis entitled Sensorical Spatial which uses a phenomenological approach to blur the lines between physical spaces (the "inanimate") and the human being or the "animate" by focusing in on three sites: the cubicle, Bellevue Hospital, and development organizations with key movements interspersed throughout. He presented the Bellevue Hospital section of the project at the 6th Annual Joint University of Liverpool Management School and Keele University Institute for Public Policy and Management Symposium on Current Developments in Ethnographic Research in the Social and Management Sciences in September 2011 at Cardiff Business School in the UK.
