Anna joined the Department of Geography in September 2016 as a Lecturer in International Development. Before this, she had teaching roles at the University of Sheffield and Northumbria University. Anna graduated from the University of Sheffield with an MA in Research in Human Geography, carrying out her dissertation on an anti-consumerist movement in New York. She then studied for her PhD in Geography at the University of Glasgow (2010-2015). Anna’s doctoral thesis ‘Territory, Resistance and Struggles for the Plurinational State: A Spatial Analysis of the TIPNIS Conflict’ explored a contemporary Left-indigenous movement that formed in resistance to the Bolivian government’s proposal to build a road through an indigenous territory and national park, known as the TIPNIS.
