Geography and the Lived Environment

Our overarching aim is to generate agenda-setting research that improves understanding of the inter-relationships between people, society and the environment.

Cultural and Historical Geography

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.

Environment and Society

An interdisciplinary group, we research the relationships between people, the environment and technology and are interested in reaching beyond individual disciplines to further our understanding of the multiple origins and dynamics of environmental and social problems.

Human Geography

The Human Geography Research Group is a welcoming collective of critical researchers and scholars based at the University of Edinburgh.

Population, Health and Place

The Population, Health and Place supports researchers with broad interests in the relationships between place, health and well-being. The group supports staff, graduate students and undergraduate students and organises a range of activities such as writing workshops, seminars, reading groups and workshops
