Projects per year
Unique in its approach, 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.
