Research Expertise and Interests
James’ research is broadly aimed at developing geographical understandings of organisational phenomena. His interests are situated at the nexus of processual approaches to organising, human geography, and transformative change. These guide his research into: diverse economies and alternative organisational practices; housing and urban futures; the role of organisations in post-growth and degrowth transitions; and encouraging STS-informed reflexivity across these areas. His work builds upon poststructuralist and new materialist philosophies to motivate interdisciplinary qualitative research approaches.
James has published in Ecological Economics on a degrowth transition. He is a reviewer for multiple journals on subjects aligned with his research interests. He is also a fellow of the Royal Geographical Society and member of the Institute of Place Management.
Outside his academic commitments, James serves on the board for Step Up, the new place-based giving project in East Manchester, and is an active member of the Steady State Manchester collective.
James’ teaching draws on his research expertise to encourage students in developing critical thinking skills and applying them to subjects such as corporate social responsibility, strategy, sustainability, and business ethics.
