Personal profile

Biography

Paul is a Lecturer in Human Geography and has worked at Northumbria University since 2016. His research interests primarily connect with the sub-field of labour geography. In practice, his work has engaged with historical geographies of labour activism and work related experiences. His research has engaged closely with ideas of spatial politics through the histories of 'Red Clydeside', and most recently, he has begun working on a project to consider collective and community responses to UK unemployment since the late 1970s. Through these engagements and wider conversations, Paul has also develoepd a wider interest in the role of archives in maintaining and providing access to 'usable pasts'. 

Paul is also the Historical Geography Section Editor for Geography Compass.

My research and teaching interests can be found within economic geography and more specifically labour geography. I am interested in the ways in which economic geography is experienced from below and how workers can shape and reshape their material conditions. I am keen to develop this research interest in both historical and contemporary settings. My doctoral research was largely archival and as a result of this I have developed a further research interest in historical geography, particularly debates regarding the archive and the production of usable pasts.

Summary of current research interests:

  1. Labour geography
  2. Histories of labour activism and internationalism
  3. Unemployment - linking with ideas of community, support and resistance
  4. Historical geography and the creation of usable pasts
