Mr Matthew Hanchard

  • Research Associate (Sociology)

Biography

  • BA (Hons) University of Derby
  • MA Goldsmiths
  • PhD Newcastle University

 Matthew is a Research Associate for an AHRC funded project called ‘BeyondtheMultiplex’ (grant reference: AH/P005780/1). The project focusses on developing a computational ontology through mixed-methods research and aims both to inform policy and generate theory on specialised film audience development. Matthew is also a Co-investigator for a collaborative project between the Universities of Glasgow and Sydney called ‘SmartPublics’. The project focusses on the policy, governance, and socio-cultural implications of converting existing street furniture (e.g. benches, telephone boxes, and InLink kiosks) into 5G enabled smart technologies.

Prior to joining Glasgow, Matthew worked as a Research Assistant for Newcastle University, where he completed a PhD (Geography, Politics, and Sociology). Previously, he taught at the University of Sheffield (Sociological Studies and the Management School) while conducting interdisciplinary research for an EU COST funded project (TU1305) titled ‘Social Networks and Travel Behaviour’. He also gained over 15 years of working experience prior to joining academia, spanning social housing policy, project management, IT software development (SharePoint), and railway infrastructure maintenance planning. At present Matthew works remotely from Derby, but is frequently on-site and is open to speak, collaborate, or network on matters surrounding any of his research interests:  

  • Audience and audience reception studies
  • Cartography, GIS, and cartographic theory
  • Data politics
  • Digital sociology
  • Digital geography
  • Qualitative research methodology
  • Transport studies and mobilities
  • Urban sociology
  • Visual sociology
  • Visual studies and photography
