In the Business of Economic Geography

Project Phase 2 – autumn 2015 (ARCHIVE)

The database compiled in Phase 1 will be used to design and administer a web-based questionnaire survey targeting UK economic geographers who haveĀ  moved into business and management.This online survey will generate new empirical data on:

  • Key motivations for economic geographers making the move (e.g. teaching loads, administrative duties, salary, peer support, disciplinary prestige)
  • The consequences of this mobility in terms of subsequent patterns of teaching, research, PhD supervision and disciplinary identification
  • Any differential experiences of movers as a function of moving into business compared with management schools
  • Patterns of subsequent ‘infill’: what happened to the posts previously occupied by these movers from UK Geography departments
