Bryonny Goodwin-Hawkins

Bryonny Goodwin-Hawkins is an interdisciplinary researcher working towards inclusive futures for rural people and places. Her work investigates how historic and contemporary policies and practices help (or hinder) thriving regions, and experiments with new models to re-enable those ‘left behind’. Bryonny joined the CCRI in 2020 as Senior Research Fellow in the National Innovation Centre for Rural Enterprise (NICRE).

Bryonny’s research bridges both theory and practice, drawing on experience in England, Wales, Brittany and Central Europe. She collaborates with sustainable development practitioners and local government to broker knowledge and translate research into policy-ready language and practical tools. Her work on creating rural-urban connections is featured in the European Commission’s Handbook of Sustainable Urban Development Strategies.

At a theoretical level, Bryonny draws on her social science background to explore the long-term social and spatial processes that continue to shape rural regions. She is especially interested in:
1) The Industrial Revolution and postindustrial afterlives in rural places
2) How and why rural places come to be imagined as ‘stuck in the past’

Bryonny is an affiliate of the Wales Institute of Social and Economic Research and Data (WISERD) and has been an invited speaker for the National Trust and the Assembly of European Regions. In 2019 she was recognised as one of the Welsh Crucible’s thirty emerging research leaders.
