Dr John Wylie
Associate Professor of Cultural Geography
I‘m a cultural geographer with current interests in landscape, creative writing, haunting and spatial theory - there‘s more information on my research interests in the ‘research‘ section of these pages. I‘m originally from Enniskillen, a town in the west of Northern Ireland. I came to England to do a geography degree at the University of Manchester, graduating in 1994. After a spell working as a glaciological research assistant, I moved on to the University of Bristol to take the MSc. Society & Space course. I stayed on at Bristol to do doctoral research, and was awarded my PhD in 2001. By then I was working as Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Sheffield. I worked in Sheffield for six years, before moving to take up my present post at Exeter in October 2006. I was promoted to Associate Professor in June 2011.
