Professor Susan Parnell

Leverhulme Visiting Professor

Professor Susan Parnell joined the UCL Urban Laboratory in January 2012 from the Department of Environmental and Geographical Sciences and the African Centre for Cities at the University of Cape Town.

As a Leverhulme Visiting Professor, she worked with Professor Jenny Robinson in the context of the Urban Laboratory to support international urban teaching and research at UCL. Professor Parnell presented a Leverhulme public lecture in May 2012 entitled ‘The Crisis in Urban Studies: revolution, reform and reconstruction’. She also undertook teaching and other public lectures in the Geography Department and at the Development Planning Unit, including a Dialogues in Development seminar series at the DPU on African perspectives on urban development planning. Additionally, Sue travelled to Manchester and Edinburgh to present further Leverhulme public lectures and build links between UCL, UCT and urban groupings in those Universities. She was also invited to contribute to a range of policy-related discussions, notably with the government Department for International Development.
