Katherine Botterill

Lecturer in Human Geography, University of Glasgow

I am a Lecturer in Human Geography at the University of Glasgow. My research is concerned with the political geography of migration, citizenship and security. I have has published papers that discuss how the geopolitics of migration connects to people’s everyday lives, shaping intercultural practices of citizenship and community. Much of my work employs feminist, participatory approaches that focus on the emotional, embodied and psycho-social realm of politics, whist also interrogating structural and discursive violences that alienate and securitise particular individuals. I am a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, and Higher Education Academy, a committee member of the RGS-IBG Population Geography Research Group, and co-convener of the Glasgow Refugee, Asylum and Migration Network.
