Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics


About the Programme

 The Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics undertakes interdisciplinary research to address global and planetary challenges such as climate change, human migration, social inequalities and resource access/depletion.

We explore the environmental, spatial and cultural dimensions of ecological and social challenges in specific places, to offer new knowledge and practice for the creation of more sustainable and socially just societies.

Our work combines theories and methods from geography, the social sciences, the physical sciences, the arts, media and communication studies, and humanities, to offer interdisciplinary perspectives on large and small-scale ecological and social challenges. With a commitment to collaborative research, we co-create research projects with a range of non-academic partners from policy, communities, arts, education, and the public and private sectors, seeking to transform people's lives at the local, national and global level.

We welcome research student applications in any of the following research areas:
• Environmental and climate change
• Human migration and mobility
• Power and inequality in/through specific spaces and environments
• New social and ecological visions to combat injustice
• Decolonial, ecological and feminist approaches
• All aspects of spatial, environmental and cultural politics
• Conflict and violence in the global South
• Sustainability and tourism.
