Research themes in the School of Geography

Culture, Space and Power

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

Earth Surface Science

Investigates how landscapes respond to the interacting chemical, physical and biological processes that drive their evolution over timescales varying from individual storm events through to millennia.

Economy, Development and Social Justice

Challenges conventional geographical and sub-disciplinary boundaries, bringing together the insights of political economy, social geography, and a hybrid economic and development geography in work that often connects the global North, South, East and West.

Health, Biosciences and Security

Focuses on research in three distinctive areas: health, place and population; the geographies of bioscience and biomedicine; and the geographies of global health, involving one of the largest groups of health geographers in the UK.
