Dr John Morris is Teaching Fellow in International Political Economy (IPE) and was previously Research Assistant in Financial Studies at Coventry University. John has previously taught International Political Economy, Economic Geography and Political Geography at University College London (UCL) and Durham University. He is an Associate Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. At Warwick he is Module Director for ‘Foundations of Political Economy’ and ‘States and Markets’.

John holds degrees in Philosophy, Public Policy and Economic Geography. In 2015 John won the 2015 Best Graduate Student Paper and £200 prize, sponsored by Palgrave Macmillan at the Warwick 50th Anniversary Conference on New Directions in International Political Economy. His articles have appeared in journals such as Economic Geography, Geoforum, Journal of Cultural Economy and Finance and Society.  His recent book is Securing Finance, Mobilizing Risk: Money Cultures at the Bank of England (Routledge, 2018). This book studied bank of England thinking about financial risk during the period 1996- 2017. Morris argues that the Bank of England’s response to ‘misfires’ in its previous assumptions about risk prompted small but important technical tweaks in the understanding and mapping of financial risk.
