British Social Geographer Danny Dorling to speak at WISERD sponsored lecture

26th April 2016

Danny Dorling will deliver a lecture titled 'A Better Politics: How government can make us happier and healthier' for the next Julian Tudor Hart Annual Lecture in July.

The talk, in collaboration with Cardiff University School of Social Sciences, Public Health Wales and Cardiff Institute of Society, Health and Wellbeing (CISHeW), will make the argument that if we start by considering what is most important to people in their lives, then we end up advocating a very different politics and set of priorities to that which is usually presented. 

Danny Dorling joined the School of Geography and the Environment in September 2013 to take up the Halford Mackinder Professorship in Geography. He was previously a professor of Geography at the University of Sheffield and before then at the University of Leeds. He has also worked in Newcastle, Bristol, and New Zealand. He went to university in Newcastle upon Tyne, and to school in Oxford. Recent sole authored books include, Unequal Health in 2013, Population Ten Billion, in 2014; Injustice: Why social inequalities still persist in 2015.

His most recent book, A Better Politics: How Government Can Make Us Happier was published earlier this year.
