Human Geography and Environmental Sciences

The research degree in Geography draws on expertise from the School's Human Geography Research Group, part of the Geography and the Lived Environment Research Institute. The Human Geography Research Group is recognised for its leading contribution to research at the forefront of the field. The group's research efforts provide challenging new insights to core geographical concerns through three research themes: - relations and identities - knowledges, practices and policies - development and power We draw on quantitative and qualitative methods, making innovative contributions to both approaches. Several research projects span our specified research themes, and many of us work in collaboration with colleagues in other parts of the humanities, social sciences and natural sciences. We have expertise in a wide range of regions, including the UK and Europe, South Asia, Australia, North and South America, Canada, the Caribbean and the Middle East. We also have productive collaborations with colleagues in many parts of the University. We support a lively programme of seminars, symposiums, readings groups and postgraduate workshops that support and disseminate our three research themes.
