Tim Cole

Professor of Social History and Director of the Brigstow Institute University of Bristol

Tim is a Co-Investigator on Bristol+Bath R+D. Tim has wide ranging interests in social and environmental histories, historical geographies, digital humanities, co-produced research and also works within the creative economy. His core research has focused in the main on Holocaust landscapes: both historical and memory landscapes.

Tim’s own interests in interdisciplinary and co-produced research have led to heading up the Brigstow Institute at the University of Bristol that fosters new interdisciplinary and co-produced research partnerships. As well as facilitating these new research teams, Tim is involved in researching what processes enable these new ways of working. Within the cluster he is particularly interested in exploring how traditional arts and humanities research strengths can be unlocked with, and for, the creative industries.
