Alumnus Jamie Peck wins Distinguished Scholarship Award
We are delighted to hear that Manchester alumnus Jamie Peck has been awarded the 2020 AAG Distinguished Scholarship Award by the American Association of Geographers.
Jamie was an undergraduate and postgraduate in the Department of Geography during the 1980s and, after a brief spell in Australia, returned to Manchester as a Lecturer in 1990.
He left Manchester as a full Professor in 2000 for the University of Wisconsin-Madison, before moving to the University of British Columbia ten years later.
Jamie has been a past Hallsworth Visitor Professor at Manchester and continues to be involved in our urban research through his position on the MUI's International Academic Advisory Board.
