Dr Caitlin DeSilvey
Associate Professor of Cultural Geography


I am a geographer whose research explores the cultural significance of material change. I use visual imagery and story-telling to engage people in imagining changing environments and places, and look to patterns from the past to try to understand what the future might bring. I am also interested in how things age over time, and in the value of repair and mending skills to extend the lives of worn objects and encourage more sustainable use of resources.

I am a member of the Environment and Sustainability Institute.
