Greg Richards has been appointed to the Editorial Board of Event Management, the leading academic journal in the field of events research.
This appointment follows a long period of association with the journal as an author, reviewer and most recently as editor of a special issue of the journal.
Greg recently published a paper on “Events in the Network Society: The Role of Pulsar and Iterative Events“, and is currently editing a special issue on “Rethinking the Eventful City”. This is based on the “Eventful Cities” book he wrote in 2010 with Robert Palmer about the use of events by cities as a policy tool. In the past few years many researchers have picked up on this theme, and so the special issue is an attempt to bring together the most recent thinking on the relationship between cities and their events.
