Rob Potter Award

The Rob Potter Award is given in celebration of Rob Potter, an eminent human geographer and founding editor of Progress in Development Studies.

Rob Potter Award

Established in 2017, the Rob Potter Award is given as a £1,500 supplement to one of the projects supported under the Society’s Small Research Grant scheme or as an independent award.

In tribute to Rob, the project to be recognised by the Award will have a focus on:

  • geographies of development (especially urbanisation, housing and participatory planning, and socio-economic development)
  • transnational migration and identities

The Society particularly welcomes proposals involving research on the contemporary Caribbean.

Rob Potter (1950-2014) was Emeritus Professor of Human Geography at the University of Reading, and a distinguished academic expert on urban geography and the geographies of development, with particular reference to the Caribbean. His research focused on urbanisation, planning, housing, tourism, heritage, race, gender and returning migrants. A tribute to Rob Potter, by his colleague and friend Professor Dennis Conway, can be read here.
