Reuben Rose-Redwood - Collaboratory Director

Email: redwood@uvic.ca

I'm a Professor of Geography at the University of Victoria and Director of the Critical Geographies Research Collaboratory. At UVic, I co-founded and serve as the current Chair of the Committee for Urban Studies, which organizes The City Talks, and I'm also a member of the Cultural, Social, and Political Thought Program. From 2021-2026, I will be serving as Associate Dean Academic in the Faculty of Social Sciences. Additionally, I am Managing Editor of Dialogues in Human Geography.

 

Research Interests

My research interests span across the field of critical human geography with a specific focus on the following key areas:

  • History of urban planning in North America
  • Cultural landscape studies and the geographies of memory, power, and place
  • Governmentality, the grid, and the spatial politics of calculation
  • Historical cartography and the politics of mapping
  • Theories of performativity and performance
  • The possibilities and limits to dialogue in human geography
  • Geographies of higher education and the international student experience

 

Teaching

  • GEOG 218 - Social & Cultural Geography
  • GEOG 340 - Cities & Planning
  • GEOG 500A - Foundations in Geography
