Distinction for UCL graduate

Trevor Barnes elected to British Academy

Professor Trevor Barnes, Professor of Geography, University of British Columbia, and UCL graduate, has been elected a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy.

Trevor gained a First-Class B.Sc (Economics)  Degree in Economics and Geography at UCL in 1978. He went on to undertake graduate work in Geography at the University of Minnesota, and was then appointed to the University of British Columbia, becoming full Professor in 1994.

Trevor has earned a major international reputation for his contribution to the recent vigour of economic geography on both sides of the Atlantic. He has not only made substantive contributions to spatial economic analysis, but also to debates on the nature of explanation in economic geography and more widely in human geography.

He has also received various Distinguished Scholar awards at UBC, and was voted Geography Teacher of the Year in the four years, 1994, 1996, 2008 and 2010.

Trevor visited UCL in March to talk about his recent research on pre-war German geography, and particularly the tragic story of the relations of father and son, Karl and Albrecht Haushofer, to the Nazi leadership.
