Dr Admos Chimhowu

My research has thus far focused on understanding processes agrarian change and social transformations in the Less Developed Countries. In my work I have sought to generate policy relevant knowledge on how changing agrarian structures transform and influence the way rural communities relate to natural resources (particularly land) and, how this relationship in turn shapes the way they make a living.

Whitworth Art Gallery

The Whitworth Art Gallery re-opens on February 14th, 2015!

A £15 million development has transformed the gallery, doubling it in size and creating new spaces that embrace the park it calls home.Yet although the Whitworth is about to open a new chapter in its history, the organisation itself has a much broader story to tell.
