Currently focusing (mainly!) on his research and teaching duties Oliver has many years of varied experience to draw on.
Until October 2012 Oliver was a trustee for Ceredigion Association of Voluntary Organisations (CAVO) and also until September of the same year a board member on Penparcau & Aberystwyth West's Communities First Partnership. Many years of community-based educational, developmental and creative work with an especial focus on working with young people in their communities has led to his undertaking this particular research topic.
Oliver also contributes to Aberystwyth University's Centre for Widening Participation and Social Inclusion's delivery currently as coordinator / tutor for the core Research Module on the Summer University programme.
Academic tutor on GG11910
Focusing currently on the 'time-space of citizenship' Oliver's doctoral research seeks to explore the influence that social and spatial practices have on young people in Wales' economic aspirations in the present and also their conceptualization of their 'future selves'. As a KESS (Knowledge Economy Skills Scholarship) scholar Oliver is working in partnership with Menter a Busnes.
