Marit Hammond, Lecturer in Politics in SPIRE, has been appointed as the new co-convenor of the Political Studies Association’s Environmental Politics Group. Dr Hammond, who has been at Keele University since 2015 specialises in Environmental Political Theory and Democratic Theory.

‘The PSA Specialist Groups are the heart of the Political Studies Association, and aim to undertake events, campaigns and projects benefiting individual academics and those interested in politics more broadly,’ Dr Hammond explained. ‘The Environmental Politics SG brings together academics, researchers and interested individuals across the vast range of subfields and research areas relating to environmental politics. We organise events on topical issues of common interest (such as international climate governance) as well as resources and workshops providing practical guidance (for instance on teaching environmental politics or securing interdisciplinary grant funding). We also have a number of specialist panels at the PSA's general conference each year. With our activities, we particularly aim to bring together academics and non-academics working on environmental politics, and to support postgraduate students and early career researchers with special funding schemes, initiatives, and advice. For these groups, the specialist group provides a great point of contact and platform for networking, exchange of ideas, outreach activities and new collaborations.’
