Dr Andrea Gibbons

Andrea Gibbons is an urban geographer in the Sustainable Housing and Urban Studies Unit with a focus on homelessness, housing and sustainability. She is particularly interested in the co-constitutive relationships between people and the cities in which they live. With a background in community organising around health and housing, she brings together political economy and cultural theory to look at race, gender, culture and social movement with cities through archival research, literature, mapping, data visualisations and ethnography.  

She is currently co-lead for the Salford Anti-Poverty Task Force, a member of the Social Prescribing Hub, and a researcher on the project ‘Welfare at a Social Distance: Accessing social security and employment support during the COVID-19 crisis and its aftermath’ (http://hub.salford.ac.uk/welfare-at-a-social-distance/) 

Her book Segregated City: 100 Years of Struggle for Just Housing in Los Angeles is available from Verso.
