Research Summary

Tim Waterman's research explores the interconnections between food, taste, place, and democratic civil society. His research addresses imaginaries: moral, political, social, ecological, radical, and utopian. This forms the basis for explorations of power and democracy and their shaping of public space and public life; taste, etiquette, customs, belief and ritual; and foodways in community and civic life and landscape.

He has been a co-convener of various conferences and symposia. He serves as a peer reviewer for the journal Landscape Research, the Journal of Architecture, and for the publishers Routledge, Bloomsbury, Oxford University Press, and the Open Library for the Humanities. He was chair (until 2020) of the Professional Review Group for the landscape programme and is External Examiner for the MSc Cultural Landscapes at the Edinburgh College of Art.

Teaching Summary

Waterman teaches two modules in landscape architecture history and theory in the MA and MLA Landscape Architecture at the Bartlett. He leads the Thesis component of the programme as well. In architecture he teaches a third year undergraduate history and theory seminar, a fourth year postgraduate history and theory seminar, and supervises students on their fifth year Architecture Thesis. He lectures regularly at other levels and in other programmes, such as teaching on the summer programmes of the Bartlett's Institute for Global Prosperity. He is also a PhD supervisor.
