Bio: 

Dr Nancy Marshall joined UNSW in 2001. Prior to an academic career in Australia, she worked as a private planning consultant in Canada specialising in public involvement, facilitation and specialised research, with a focus on qualitative data management and analysis. Nancy’s time in Canada also saw her gain many years experience as a community development facilitator at the local government level. This role included working with grassroots organisations in an effort to more efficiently and effectively deliver parks, recreation and facilities within communities. The position also involved policy research and plan-making.

Nancy is currently a corporate member of the Planning Institute of Australia (PIA) and was extensively involved in the Canadian Institute of Planners. Nancy was a national Senior Editor for the journal Plan Canada 1997-2002. She was the Chair and member of the Provincial Planning Education and Practice Review Committee for the Alberta Association, Canadian Institute of Planners 1995-1997 which was the provincial, professional planning accreditation body for CIP. Nancy sat as a member of the quasi-judicial Subdivision and Development Appeal Board for the City of Calgary 1994-1997.

 

 

 

Research Activities: 

Nancy’s research priorities fall under the specific categories of urban governance and place-making through planning strategies and social policy. This includes the interplay of governance structures and decision-making and how that manifests in and influences the contested concept of place. Green/open, grey/urban and rural/landscaped space becomes place when infused with sociocultural, economic and environmental value and meaning. People create and construct place intellectually, intuitively and experientially. Her research documents the process of place identity, 'imageability' and articulates one’s ‘sense of belonging’ and 'connectedness' to place, especially urban parklands and rural landscapes.

Her place-making research challenges how planners traditionally document ‘sense of place.’ Discourse analysis of creative representations of place—through for example painting, photography, artistic installation, sculpture, story-telling, multimultimedia and soundscapes—provides a way of understanding relationships between seemingly disparate ways of knowing a place and allows an exploration of understanding place which traditionally may have been dismissed as too vernacular or whimsical for serious consideration. Her research also explores how the spirit of place can be known through intuition from its physical or sociocultural landscapes and collective consciousness. The final aspect of Nancy’s place-making research explores how people experience a place and recollect memory and how the imagination of history or the future can add to their quality of life.

Nancy’s Scholarship of Teaching and Learning research underpins her approach as both a teacher and as an educational leader and manager. Current research includes studying higher education contexts for students and universities. This includes the education of professional theories of knowledge, authority, education and practices working in today’s neocorporate ideology based on corporate structure and third sector co-governance.
