Ryan Powell is Reader in Urban Studies in the Department of Urban Studies and Planning at the University of Sheffield and has conducted research for the ESRC, JRF, the Big Lottery Fund, DWP, CLG, Northern Ireland Executive, Scottish Government, Welsh Government, regional bodies, and various local authorities and charitable organisations. The central theme of his research is seeking to understand the socio-dynamics of unequal power relations and their consequences in terms of urban marginalisation, both contemporary and historical. This includes access to housing and employment as well as wider questions of citizenship, urban governance and the stigmatisation of “outsider” groups.
