  • Rosie Day (School of Geography, Earth and Environmental Sciences, University of Birmingham)

Rosie Day is an environmental human geographer interested in various aspects of peoples experience of, and engagement with, the wider environment. Much of her work has been in the area of environmental inequalities and environmental justice where she has developed a particular theme on ageing and environmental issues. She is currently largely focused on research to do with energy demand, especially issues of energy poverty and energy justice. Her style of working is highly multi-disciplinary, and she works in teams with academics from engineering, history, transport studies, architecture and sociology, from the UK and beyond.

This seminar is part of the 2019-20 Global Ethics Tea Seminar Series hosted by the Centre for the Study of Global Ethics.

The talk will start at 15:15, but please join us for tea and cake from 14:30.
