George Revill

My background is in historical-cultural geography and I have always been particularly interested in landscape as a way of understanding past and contemporary experiences of place and environment. These ideas have developed in my work through interests in geographies of travel, transport and mobility on the one hand a long standing interest in sound, music and auditory spaces on the other. Though my work has ranged further afield the main focus is on the British Isles from the late 18th century.

My research career began by studying landscaping and industrial economic activity on eighteenth century landed estates and moved on through issues of nineteenth century workplace identity and culture to an examination of landscape, place and national identity in twentieth century British art music and folk music. I chaired the international interdisciplinary research charity Landscape Research Group (publishers of the journal Landscape Research) between 1999 and 2009. I arrived at the Open University in 1995 after teaching for 12 years in a new university where I also spent three years as head of geography. My previous teaching post gave me an interest in alternative teaching methods, which I have been able to develop in new contexts here at the Open University.
