DSC_1474Hailing from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the North East of England, Jacob Fairless Nicholson is a doctoral candidate at the Department of Geography, King’s College London funded by the AHRC London Arts and Humanities Partnership.

Jacob’s thesis explores informal and alternative spaces of education in London from the late 1960s up until the late 1980s. Specifically, the project expands existing knowledge on education for Black children, young people and adults during this period by providing original empirical insights on Black supplementary schools, adult education projects, and international youth exchanges. Previously, Jacob completed an undergraduate degree in Geography at King’s and a MSc in Urban Studies at University College London.

Alongside this engagement with cultural and historical geography, Jacob maintains a keen interest in film, photography and visual methods. Together, these interests have amounted to a broad range of outputs, both academic and non-academic, including: event photography for clients such as UCL Urban Laboratorytravel and everyday life photography; and film making and production. Jacob has exhibited at the V&A and the British Academy in London.
