The Human Geography research group conducts theoretically and empirically informed research aimed at understanding how social practices and relations are conditioned by space and place.
A series of subthemes exist to bring expertise together on particular topics: geopolitics, transitions and the carceral; Adapting to energy and environmental uncertainties; Urban and regional studies; Bodies, landscapes and materialities.
The Human Geography research group has an excellent track record of grant capture from the UK’s Research Councils, the EU’s Framework Programmes, the Nuffield Foundation, the European Science Foundation, and a range of government bodies and charitable organisations from across the world. Colleagues have good external collaborations and have established an excellent public engagement profile. We strongly engage with policy, especially with regard to urban regeneration, imprisonment, renewable energy, fuel poverty and climate change mitigation strategies.
