University Senior Lecturer in Geography
Research projects & themes
I contributed many years ago to a British Academy volume on this subject which has since opened up to such an extent it scarcely resembles the work discussed 12 years ago. My interests are concerned with the uses of cartography for cognitive framing (e.g. how people use map projections to see the world), the exploration of counter- mapping narratives, the use of digital spatial images in the mass media. I have recently collaborated with Dr Robin Boast (MAA) on digital ontologies, as well as more particular projects concerning the use of digital media by indigenous peoples to reassert control of their knowledge traditions.
