Dr Alice Evans

Profile 

Alice Evans is a Bye-Fellow of Fitzwilliam College and University Lecturer in Human Geography. She teaches on international development, economic globalisation, postcolonial geographies and qualitative methods. Her research focuses on the causes of change and continuity in gender ideologies and practices. Recent projects include the decline of the male breadwinner in Britain and Zambia, as well as the relationship between urbanisation and support for gender equality – how this is mediated by macro-economic conditions, national policies and individual circumstances. A common thread here is an interest in learning from research on gender in the Global North and South.
