Dr Benjamin Bowles


I graduated from Durham in 2011 from the combined Biological/Social Anthropology BA and moved to Brunel, where my MRes in Social Anth was interrupted when my PhD funding proposal was accepted in January of 2012. Subsequently I conducted fieldwork with traveling boaters on the waterways of London and the south of England before returning to Brunel in order to write-up my thesis and help out with Undergraduate teaching.
