Dr Jeremy Moulton



Dr Jeremy F G Moulton has been working at the University of York since 2017. He has previously taught at York’s Department of Environment & Geography and at the University of Hull’s School of Politics and International Studies.

His teaching practice currently covers comparative politics, environmental politics, European Union studies, and the politics of the UK, across Undergraduate and Postgraduate programmes in the Department of Politics and International Relations. 

Jeremy holds a doctorate degree in Politics from the University of Hull for a thesis entitled A Tale of Two Cities: Climate Action and Political Myth in the European Union. He also holds an MA in Global Politics Economy and a BA in Politics. He has published peer-reviewed work on EU climate action, urban ecological modernisation, political myth, and UK politics and renewables policy.

Developing the teaching and learning environment at York is a subject with which Jeremy is deeply engaged. He has been awarded funding for and completed research projects on first-generation students’ experiences within HE, student conceptions of teaching innovation, and the experiences of students that study abroad or undertake a year-in-industry placement.

He is currently undertaking funded work on the identification of achievement gaps in the Department and the pedagogy of degrowth. As well as undertaking teaching and research, Jeremy currently works as the Department’s Admissions Tutor.
