Research themes in the School



Explores the geographies of cultural practices, forms and knowledges and the cultural dimensions of geographical processes in different historical and geographical settings.

Investigates how the earth responds to the interacting chemical, physical and biological processes that drives its evolution over timescales varying from individual storm events through to millennia.

Explores diverse paths towards more just worlds: bringing together research into multiple economic, political and social injustices while deploying engaged and often collaborative methodologies to explore just alternatives. 

Focuses on four distinctive areas: form and function of health interventions; commensurability and friction in health networks; signification and forms of knowledge and power, distributive justice and health inequalities, involving one of the largest groups of health geographers in the UK.

Brings together environmental, human and more-than-human research to examine the evolving relationship between nature and society. Understands that environments are socially and politically constituted, and that environmental processes are bound up in the production of social categories.
