Our Theme Leaders
Anna Wilson is a Reader in Interdisciplinary Research in the School of Education. She approaches Sustainability from a complex ecological perspective on learning and knowledge generation. She is interested in how we (individuals, groups and organisations) learn both about and from our environments, and how we can unlearn unsustainable habits and practices.
Cecilia is a Professor in Practice in the School of Interdisciplinary Studies. She has over 30 years of experience working on water, environment and natural resources management in the overall context of development. Cecilia is currently working on impacts of global changes on water resources, environment, food, and societies, and their inter-linkages.
Jill is a Lecturer in Private Law at the University of Glasgow. Jill's research interest lies within the field of property law and natural resources. She is currently investigating the tensions between social justice, economic development and environmental protection in the context of the law regulating land use. She is particularly interested in analysing these tensions in relation to water.
Karen is a Senior Lecturer in Urban Sustainable Development in the Department of Urban Studies. Her concerns are inequities in environmental burdens, inclusion in environmental decision-making and eco-social policy making. She researches environmental justice, Just Transition and military impacts on the environment or the ‘Treadmill of Destruction’.
Marcela is a Research Fellow that specialises in interdisciplinary research, environmental sustainability, working with communities and the effects of marketisation and privatisation in education. Marcela’s research interests lie in exploring and understanding how education can help us think and problematise the exercise of sustainable practices within challenging (post-conflict, unequal) contexts.
