Susannah Bunce

Associate Professor

Department of Human Geography

Dr. Bunce's research centres on the role of sustainability in the context of spatial planning, development, and redevelopment practices in urban communities and neighbourhoods. Her research examines the actors, interests and motives in the adoption of sustainability principles and practices within urban communities and neighbourhoods and explores socio-environmental discourses, sustainability planning, and strategies for socio-environmental justice and change. She is interested in the local politics of land use, socio-environmental contestations over local spaces - particularly those caused by gentrification - and more hopeful community-based methods for affordable, accessible, and sustainable land stewardship. Dr. Bunce examines these processes in cities in Canada, Britain, and the United States.
