Dr Julie Brown is a lecturer in creative enterprise. Prior to this, she was a transformation fellow in cultural economy at the University of Leeds and a post-doctoral research fellow at the University of Birmingham, where she worked on a four-year international research project looking at the locational factors of creative industries development across 13 European metropolitan regions.

She has researched, published and taught on the role of creativity and the creative industries in urban and rural place-making and economic development; sites and spaces of contemporary cultural and creative production; conditions of contemporary creative and cultural work and labour; and cultural and creative sector policy development, and has been invited to lecture and chair workshop and symposia sessions on these topics both in the UK and abroad. 

She is currently undertaking research to understand how creative businesses in Southampton are evolving in response to global-local challenges and the role of local HEIs in supporting their development. She has just completed work for the British Council exploring the challenges and opportunities for developing the creative economy in Pakistan.
