Author Profile

Amber Martin

PhD Reseracher, School of Geography

I am a cultural economic geographer interested in geographies of fashion, retail and consumption. I also have a strong interest in feminist geography and specialise in geographies of gender and sexuality. I am currently in my third year of studying for my PhD for which I am researching the changing geographies of the sex shop industry within England.

I studied for her undergraduate degree in Geography at Nottingham and then received an ESRC 1+3 scholarship which provided funding for my masters ‘Economy, Space and Society’ and for the three years of my PhD research. Alongside my PhD I enjoy demonstrating on first year and masters statistics modules and taking first year tutorials.

Since being at Nottingham I have also been involved heavily with the University’s postgraduate theatre project. Since starting my PhD I have acted in three plays and recently directed ‘An Ideal Husband’ by Oscar Wilde.
