Nature, Society and Environmental Change

Members of the Department of Geography are engaged in research on the products of human-driven environmental change – phenomena that can only be fully understood through the incorporation of both bio-physical and social analyses. These cross-disciplinary interactions include studies of environmental governance, citizenship and resource management, environmental history and legacies of contamination, traditional ecological knowledge and power dynamics expressed through environmental issues. Sustainability of urban ecosystems is another major areas of expertise.
