Dr Alexander kent
Alex is well known in the international and national academic cartographic communities, regularly giving keynotes, invited talks and lectures to a wide range of audiences. His expertise is centred upon cartographic design and his research focuses on the relationship between maps, landscape, and society.
He is the Immediate Past President of the British Cartographic Society, Chair of the ICA Commission on Topographic Mapping, Editor of The Cartographic Journal, and is a committee member of UK Cartography, the Charles Close Society, and the Society of Cartographers.
Combining theoretical aspects of cartography with their practical application is a key characteristic of Alex's career. Prior to joining the Department, Alex was Head of the Cartographic Unit at the University of Southampton and since graduating from Cambridge he has spent 17 years lecturing in the associated fields of cartography, GIS and remote sensing.
I am a final year student studying BA Social Anthropology and French at the University of Kent. My main interests are in epistemology, an in particular post-modern considerations of representation and the role of the researcher in ethnographic knowledge production, and post-structuralist theories inspired by Foucault's works on power relations.
