Tim Cole is Professor of Social History at the University of Bristol and director of the Brigstow Institute. He has wide-ranging interests in social and environmental histories, historical geographies and digital humanities and also works within the creative economy. His core research has focused in the main on Holocaust landscapes – both historical and memory landscapes – writing books on Holocaust representation (Images of the Holocaust/Selling the Holocaust, 1999), the spatiality of ghettorisation in Budapest (Holocaust City, 2003), social histories of the Hungarian Holocaust (Traces of the Holocaust, 2011) and the spatiality of survival (Holocaust Landscapes, 2016) as well as co-editing a collection of essays emerging from an interdisciplinary digital humanities project he co-led (Geographies of the Holocaust, 2015). Alongside this research, he has also developed interests in environmental history, being a co-editor of a study of military landscapes (Militarised Landscapes, 2010) and now working on a new book that explores social, cultural, landscape and environmental change in post-war Britain (About Britain).
