Dr Annabelle Edwards

Senior Research Associate

Annabelle Edwards

Furness Building



Research overview

I am a cultural health geographer and my interests lie (primarily) in the critical development of the 'therapeutic landscapes' concept (and its implications for social prescribing), and post-phenomenological theory and methods.  More broadly I have interests in the relationship between health and place, and in mediating influence of embodied history and embodied difference on this relationship. 

Currently I am working on the Wellcome Trust funded project - Accounting for the experiential complexity of socially-prescribed activities
