As geographers and environmental scientists, we study the social, cultural, political, economic and physical processes that create and reshape the world. Our overarching goal is cutting-edge research that matters and makes a difference, intellectually and practically. As a collective, we draw on and contribute to the humanities, the social sciences and the environmental sciences. We are always striving for a critical and ethical approach to understanding the world, and we work with communities near and far to achieve positive transformations in people's lives.
The Cultural and Historical Geography research group brings together geographers, social scientists and humanities scholars from across the University. We are united by broadly interpretative and analytical approaches to environment, landscape, science, space and place.
The Environment and Society research group is an interdisciplinary group who research the relationship between people, the environment and technology and is interested in reaching beyond individual disciplines to further understand the multiple origins and dynamics of environmental and social problems.
The Human Geography research group provides an active, collective and collaborative space of research support, mentoring, intellectual exchange and visibility for critical human geographers at the University.
