Research overview <p>My early research interests were broadly situated within&nbsp;the relationship between visual culture, place and identity and&nbsp;more specifically, the geographies of national identity, multiculturalism and the spaces of the art gallery. These interests were further developed into a related but more specific engagement with the geographies of the Atlantic world and the constitution of abstract expressionism as an&#39;Atlantic art&#39;. This work was informed by theoretical engagements with critical histories of the Atlantic world and the constitution of this world through temporal-spatial networks of cultural circulation. My current resesarch has extended a long standing&nbsp;interest&nbsp;in&nbsp;visual culture and landscape into critical understandings of nature and the geographies of human-wildlife relations. More specifically I have been interested in the relationship between humans and starlings and how the status of starlings has&nbsp;shifted&nbsp;from being regarded as a pest to becoming a wildlife spectacle. Furthermore I am intertested in how this informs critical understandings of the geographies of&#39;nature&#39; as well as the role of non-humans&nbsp;in challenging and defining these understandings.&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;</p><p><strong>Selected publications</strong></p><p><span>Morris, A (2018) Educational landscapes and the environmental entang</span><span>lement of humans and non-humans through the starling murm</span><span>uration,&nbsp;</span><em>The Geographical Journal (early view)</em></p><p>Morris, A (2005) The Cultural Geographies of Abstract Expressionism: Painters, Critics, Dealers and the Production of an Atlantic Art,<em>Social and Cultural Geography</em>vol.6 (3), pp. 421-437.</p><p>Morris and Tolia-Kelly (2004) Disruptive Aesthetics?
