Some information about me
BA, MA, PhD
Huw completed his PhD at the University of Manchester before taking up an ESRC Postdoctoral Fellowship in the Centre for the Study of Social and Global Justice (CSSGJ) at the University of Nottingham. He was then a Hallsworth Fellow in Political Economy at the University of Manchester before taking up his Lectureship in IPE. Finally, he is a member of the BISA International Political Economy working group and the Critical Political Economy Research Network, as well as convenor of the Global Political Economy research cluster and the Historical Materialism Research Group at Manchester.
Huw is interested in the role of finance within the global restructuring of capitalism and, in particular, within different nationally embedded forms of market organisation. This springs from a wider concern about the socio-economic effects of processes of neoliberalisation, or what others would call the financialization of everyday life. His second - related - set of research interests focuses on the spatial political economy. Both projects are therefore linked by his work on crises, drawing upon the writings of Marxism and Gramscianism. This too springs from a wider concern with the questions of how, why and when crises provide unique moments for the reform of patterns of accumulation.
