Profile

I'm Rhodri Evans, and I'm a historical political geographer who has found a home within the School of Education. I take partocular interest in issues of identity, nationalist politics, student radicalism, Welsh history and rurality. I graduated with a BScEcon in History and International Politics from Aberystwyth University in 2015, before undertaking an MA in Welsh History at Aberystwyth which focused on the protests of the 'Tithe War' during the 1890's. I then researched the student society of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and its role in developing a sense of Welsh national identity during the 1960's. Following the completion of my PhD, I moved to the School of Education in 2021.

Research

Firstly, I am interested in issues of national identity formation within society, and the means through which differing conceptions of identity are expressed and nurtured. Secondly, I am interested in peripheral nationalist participation in civil society, including actions which may be considered 'radical'.  Additionally, issues of rurality, and their impact upon educational provision, and opportunities, represent an emerging interest..

Responsibilities

I am responsible for coordinating our departmental students' opportunities to study abroad.
