Dr Phil Jones
How do human geographers use creative methods, such as poetry, to engage with changing places? We spoke to Dr Phil Jones, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Geography at University of Birmingham about his collaboration with professional poet, Chris Jam, in Cardiff, Wales.
Dr Phil Jones is a cultural geographer with research interests in urban regeneration, place-making, and the arts. More particularly, he is interested in the use of creative methods in geographical research; such as qualitative GIS, mobile interviewing and arts-based approaches.
