Biography

Nicholas Wise is Reader in International Urban Change in the Faculty of Business and Law at Liverpool John Moores University. Originally from Lancaster, Pennsylvania in the United States, Nicholas completed his Bachelor’s degree at Lock Haven University (2006) and Master’s at Indiana University of Pennsylvania (2008). In 2012 he completed his PhD in Human Geography at Kent State University in Ohio. For his PhD research he conducted an ethnographic study residing with Haitians in a remote village in the Dominican Republic studying sport, contested identities and (informal) events. Upon completion, Nicholas moved to Scotland where he worked as Lecturer in International Sport, Events and Tourism Management at Glasgow Caledonian University from 2012 to 2015. He then worked in Taiwan before beginning his current position in Liverpool. Nicholas has travelled extensively in 100 countries as a student, an instructor, for research/fieldwork, to present at conferences, as a volunteer and for leisure, inspiring him to conduct internationally focused research and to edit collections bringing together a range of international perspectives.

His current research focuses on urban studies, competitiveness, social regeneration and community impacts, conducting work across the areas of sport, events and tourism. He brings an international perspective to his teaching informed by scholarly research focusing on the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Brazil, Croatia, Serbia and Italy. He has published across several disciplines and collaborates with colleagues across a number of academic disciplines. His most recent contributions appear in a number in international journals including: Cities, Geographical Research, Journal of Community Psychology, International Review for the Sociology of Sport, Sport in Society, Local Economy, Sustainability, Tourism Management Perspectives, and he has written book chapters for a number of edited collections. Links to these recent journal articles can be found in the publications tab.
