Biography

Joseph Brady has been a member of the staff of geography since 1988. He is an urban geographer with wide ranging interests. These are currently focused on the theory and application of utopian city planning and on the study of the growth and development of Dublin.

His interest in Dublin has led him, in collaboration with his former colleague Anngret Simms, to publish a series of books entitled The Making of Dublin City. The intention is to study the development of the city form the earliest times to the present day form a geographical perspective.

Teaching is an important part of his academic profile and his intention is to develop the resources available to students via the web. Currently these are concentrated on his first and third year urban geography courses but this will be expanded in due course.
