Elizabeth Robson is a Research Postgraduate at the University of Stirling. She is currently completing a collaborative doctoral project focused on how we can better understand and evidence the social values associated with the historic environment, including people’s sense of identity, belonging, attachment and place. The research is a partnership between and funded by the University of Stirling and Historic Environment Scotland.
Elizabeth holds degrees in History (BA, University of Exeter), Environment, Development and Policy (MA, University of Sussex), and Social Anthropology (MRes, University of Aberdeen). She is an experienced professional, with a background working internationally for organisations promoting human rights and citizen participation.
Her current research builds on her experience and interest in participatory approaches, community empowerment and how social values, such as identity, are reflected in place management processes.
Elizabeth is a Research Assistant on the JPI CURBATHERI project, contributing to WP3. She will be applying her knowledge of people-centred, qualitative methods as part of the Woolwich case study.
