Dr. England's undergraduate degree (Combined Studies) is from the University of Leicester, UK and her MA and PhD (both in Geography) are from the Ohio State University. Prior to coming to the University of Washington, Dr. England taught at the University of Toronto.
Dr. England's research spans feminist, economic, social and political geographies, particularly in terms of the relationships between care, paid work and the home, and the interconnections between inequalities, social reproduction and the state, primarily in urban North America. She explores the shifting contours of care work, welfare and the meanings of home associated with neoliberal social policy reforms. Dr. England has also been involved in a cross-disciplinary collaboration (which includes graduate and undergraduate students) employing digital platforms and tools to generate transdisciplinary knowledges about the multidimensional dynamics of cities.
