This well established research theme represents a form of geographical enquiry related to wider developments in the arts and humanities. Researchers in this area have been particularly successful in undertaking collaborative projects within and beyond the School, securing substantial grants from research council and charitable trusts (AHRC, ESRC, Leverhulme and Wellcome) to fund research staff, and attracting postgraduate students, a number of whom have taken up important posts elsewhere.
Research focuses on:
- Cultural representations of landscape and environment Patterns and processes of historical geographical change
- Histories of geographical and environmental knowledge
