David Evans is a Professorial Fellow in the Faculty of Social Sciences and the Deputy Director of the University’s Sustainable Food Futures group (SheFF). He joined the Geography department in September 2016 having worked at the University of Manchester for over 8 years.
My research explores the role of material and cultural practices in the making and co-ordination of moral and political economies. This reflects core theoretical interests in material culture, questions of value (and waste), and the nature of exchange. Much of work is located within the geographies and sociology of consumption with a particular emphasis on sustainability, food and responsibility.
