Dr Annabelle Edwards

Senior Research Associate

Annabelle Edwards

Furness Building



Research overview

I am currently an ESRC post-doctoral research fellow based in the Lancaster University Medical School. During my fellowship year (2021-22), I will mostly be writing up papers from my thesis, preparing grant applications, and delivering teaching within the medical school.

By training I am cultural health geography/health sociologist 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. 

Thesis awarded (April 2020): 'A post-phenomenological study of 'therapeutic landscape' experiences'
