Nicholas

Lynch

Assistant Professor

Nick is an Assistant Professor in Memorial University's geography department and an urban cultural geographer interested in the politics of consumptions and cultural change in the city.

 

His current research focuses on the social and cultural aspects of the circular economy, and how paradigm shifts in environmental and waste practices are transforming cultures of consumption and housing in London and Amsterdam.

 

In After Church, Nick is exploring the redevelopment of redundant institutional properties, including former spaces of worship, to uncover issues of gentrification, reuse, and religious change in the post-secular and post-industrial city.

Want to inquire about graduate studies? Nick is open to supervising research on adaptive reuse, urban sustainability, the circular economy, and geographies of housing and home.
