Kevin's PhD is entitled ‘Roots, Revivals and Reinventions: A Regional History of Community Business in Britain since the 1970s.’ The key aims of his research is to draw together several related strands of research to from a more focused historical analysis of how specific regional assets as well as identities have shaped the development of community business in post industrial areas of England and Scotland.
