Dr Nadia Von Benzon

Senior Teaching Associate

I am interested in undertaking social geography research with children and young people.  Previous research has included resaerch with learning disabled young people exploring access to the natural environment.  I am particularly interested in methods, ethics and practice of researrch with marginalised and vulnerable people and the promotion of knowledge sharing opportunities in this area. I intend to pursue research exploring the geography of young people and relgion including faith-based intervention with disadvantaged young people.  I am also interested in researching young people's relationship to religion and identity through embodied religious practices.
