Trevor John Barnes, FBA (born 14 July 1956, London, England) is a British geographer and Professor of Economic geography at the University of British Columbia.


Trevor Barnes received his Ph.D. in 1983 at University of Minnesota with a thesis under the supervision of Eric Sheppard titled The Geography of Value, Production, and Distribution: Theoretical Economic Geography after Sraffa. Barnes began his career as a spatial scientist, but in recent years his interest has moved to the history of economic geography. His current projects concern the history of geography’s quantitative revolution; epistemological pluralism in economic geography; the institutional analysis of forestry with Roger Hayter; and creative industries.[1] In 2014 he was elected a Corresponding Fellow of the British Academy.[2]

Barnes is considered by notable geographers as a "Key Thinker on Space and Place"[3] and in 2011 was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada.[4] In 2012, he was given the Ellen Churchill Semple award at the Department of Geography, University of Kentucky.[5]
