Dr Angela Maye-Banbury MSc, Dip HE, PhD, Fellow of the Chartered Institute

Principal Lecturer in Housing Studies


I have worked as a university lecturer and researcher specialising in housing, regeneration and community development for over twenty years. I joined the team at Sheffield Hallam University as a Senior Lecturer in 2006 to provide input into our social housing and regeneration portfolio. I was appointed Principal Lecturer in 2010 to lead the Department in our strategic approach in matters related to learning, teaching and assessment.

  • About

    Prior to a career in academia, I worked held a variety of roles related to education, training and community development. I have worked as a senior local government officer in social housing. I have served as a Board member for Leeds and Yorkshire Housing Association. I have also provided consultancy and training services to a large number of organisations including Habitat For Humanity, Shelter, Queen's University and various local authorities and housing associations.

    I am the Departmental Lead for Learning, Teaching and Assessment (LTA) in the Department of Architecture. My role involves the implementation of the Faculty's vision of LTA and the provision of support and guidance to the team on key LTA strategic matters.

    As the Department's representative on the Faculty's Ethics Committee, I keep colleagues appraised of any changes in how we address research ethics in our dissertation related modules.

    I teach across a range of modules, notably on our housing and regeneration undergraduate and postgraduate routes. I supervise undergraduate, postgraduate students and doctoral candidates.

    My specialist teaching areas include the history of social housing, housing law; neighbourhood management and community engagement in regeneration.

    I am also interested in research methods, specifically the use of the oral history method and narrative analysis in the social sciences. Research ethics is another of my teaching interests.
