Professor Jon Anderson Literary Atlas Wales

School of Geography and Planning, Cardiff University

John's academic interest is oriented around the 'extraordinary sets of relations between people and places' (Holloway & Hubbard, 2000:6). These 'extraordinary relations' circulate around a number of spaces of interest, including Geography, Place & Culture; Water Worlds and Surfing Places; and Literary Geographies, and have led to a range of international quality research publications and funding projects.

Current projects include the AHRC funded 'A New Literary Geography: Establishing a Digital Literary Atlas for Wales and its Borderlands' (April 2016-July 2018), and the ESRC funded 'Locality, Community & Civil Society' (Work Package 1.2 in WISERD Civil Societies, Theme 1: Redefining Local Civil Society in an age of Global Inter-Connectivity, with Professor Mike Woods, Sept 2016-Sept 2018).

These research interests inform John's undergraduate and postgraduate teaching, both of which have won national teaching awards (Royal Town Planning Institute Awards for Teaching Excellence, 2009, 2011).
