The RSA is pleased to announce the new Conference and Events Coordinator on the RSA Board is John Harrison.
John Harrison works at Loughborough University in the UK. He is a regional geographer interested in the planning and governance of cities and regions. John has been an Editor of Regional Studies since 2013, first as its inaugural Early Career Editor and then section editor for ‘Urban and Regional Horizons’. His recent publications include the Handbook on the Geographies of Regions and Territories, Doing Global Urban Research, Metropolitan Regions, Planning and Governance, and Planning Regional Futures.
John has this to share upon the news of his election:
“I am delighted to be joining the RSA Board. I attended my first RSA event back in 2003 as a Masters student and as a member ever since I have benefitted enormously from the support it provides to all its members. Almost two decades later it is fantastic to have this opportunity to give back to the Association and to support members by being a full and active member of the RSA Board.”
