- About me
Kingsley L. Dennis BA, MA (distinction), PhD, is a sociologist and writer. He worked as a lecturer in English & American Literature for several years at a university in Istanbul, Turkey. More recently he lectured in Social Theory at Lancaster University and was a Research Associate within the Centre for Mobilities Research (CeMoRe). He co-authored After the Car (Polity, 2009), which examines post-peak oil societies and mobility. This provocative and insightful book examined how several major processes are shaping the future towards a ‘post-car’ and ‘post peak-oil’ world; such as resource depletion; climatic changes; increased digitisation of many aspects of economic and social life; and massive global population increases. Kingsley’s earlier research examined general evolutionary theory in relation to socio-cultural development. He has also published articles on complexity theory, social and military technologies, civil society, and new media communications.
Kingsley currently lives in Andalusia (Southern Spain) and is the author of the forthcoming book New Consciousness for a New World (2011); as well as The Struggle For Your Mind: Conscious Evolution and the Battle to Control How We Think (2012). He is also active as a co-initiator of the Worldshift Movement, that works towards a positive transformation in our world. He is also the Co-Founder of the newly established WorldShift International. He also spends alot of time in his new garden where he is learning to grow his own chemical-free vegetables. He also keeps fruit and olive trees. He believes in living a more sustainable and self-sufficient lifestyle. He currently lives off the water mains and relies on his own 30 metre water well. He continues to research, write, travel, grow his own vegetables, and seek to understand life’s mysteries.
