DSC_1474Hailing from Newcastle-upon-Tyne in the North East of England, and now rooted in Hackney Wick, East London, 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 aims to expand existing knowledge of supplementary education for black young people and adults during this period. 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 over time, these interests have amounted to a broad range of outputs, both academic and non-academic, including travel and everyday life photographyevent photography, and filmmaking and production. This website represents a record of those interests and outputs.
