Dr Angela Connelly

Research Associate

After training as a political scientist, Angela Connelly completed her PhD within the Manchester Architecture Research Centre, which was funded under the AHRC/ESRC 'Religion and Society' Programme. In collaboration with the Methodist Church Property Office and supervised by Professor Michael Hebbert and Dr. Andrew Crompton considered the architectural and social history of Methodism's Central Halls as a hybrid building type of public and sacred space.

Since then she has worked on a number of projects from climate change adaptation to art and sustainability. The thread that runs through each is their focus on how urban environments adapt to a range of diverse circumstances and can be continually reimagined and represented.
