Kevin Hetherington

After receiving a BA(Hons) in Geography and Sociology (University of Leeds, 1989) I was awarded an ESRC funded PhD in Sociology at Lancaster University in 1993.  I lectured in Sociology for twelve years from 1992 at the universities of Keele (92-97), Brunel (97-00) and Lancaster (00-04) where I was awarded a Personal Chair in Cultural Sociology in 2003. I moved to The Open University in January 2005 to take up a Chair in Geography, a post I have held since that time. I am currently Dean and Director of Studies, Faculty of Social Sciences.
