Ben Rogaly is Professor of Human Geography and former Head of the Geography Department. He has researched the intricacies of employment relations involving migrant workers in rural India and the UK since the early 1990s. His most recent ethnographic and oral history work has focused on class, place, migration and belonging in the provincial cities of Norwich and Peterborough in England, and has led to a co-authored book with historian Becky Taylor Moving Histories of Class and Community: Identity, Place and Belonging in Contemporary England (Palgrave, 2011); an article with anthropologist Kaveri Qureshi on Diversity, urban space and the right to the provincial city; and a website emerging from his AHRC Fellowship Places for all? A multi-media investigation of citizenship, work and belonging in a fast-changing provincial city co-produced with artists and grassroots organisations. Ben's recent article in Society and Space questioned the framing of migration in contemporary debates.
