Mr Christopher Perkins - Personal details
BA (Cantab), MA (Sheffield)
- Programme Director Geography with International Study
- Chair International Cartographic Association Maps and Society Research Commission 2007-
I have taught and researched in Geography in Manchester since 1998, having previously run the university map libraries. My interests lie at the interface between mapping technologies and social and cultural practices, with ongoing research into performative aspects of contemporary mapping behaviour, and an emerging interest in play. These interests are reflected in eight edited and authored books and numerous academic articles and in my teaching with courses currently focusing on Envisioning Space and Maps in Society. In addition I lead a Second Year Field Course to Crete and run our Geography with International Studies programme.
