Dr Thomas Wanner
To link to this page, please use the following URL:
Thomas Wanner has a background in development studies, international political economy and international relations and politics. He is not a trained geographer but would fit into the cultural, environmental and political geography camps of human geography and the overall field of critical geography. His main research and teaching interests are in the fields of development studies, the international and national political economy of environment and development issues, and transformative and critical pedagogies. He is particularly interested in the power and knowledge structures and relationships in societies that produce specific meanings and practices of unsustainability and how to transform them to achieve social and ecological justice. Transformative change and critical pedagogies are a central part of his research and teaching. His teaching is characterised by a blended learning (using online learning tools to enhance the face-to-face teaching and learning) and student-centred approach.
