Andrew Baldwin is a lecturer in human geography. Prior to joining Durham University, he was a lecturer in human geography at the University of Manchester (2009) and an assistant professor and postdoctoral research fellow at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ontario (2006-2008). Andrew received his doctorate from Carleton University in Ottawa in 2006, and was a consultant with the International Institute for Sustainable Development from 2000-2006.
Andrew’s research aims to understand how race and whiteness operate as key terms of reference in the expanding discourse on climate change and migration.

Beyond this his research interests include race and environmental politics, critical race theory, whiteness, futurity, migration, environmental citizenship and political and cultural theory.
