Organisation profile

The People, Nature, and Places (PNP) Research Excellence Group brings together academics and PhD students from human geography and town planning.

The group shares a distinctly geographical approach that highlights the role of space, place and materiality in producing inequalities and in configuring social, spatial and environmental change. A core aim is to develop new and meaningful ways of thinking and working collaboratively to effect more just futures.

Members of PNP are also active participants of the Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics, the Centre for Transforming Sexuality and Gender, the Centre for Aquatic Environments, the Centre for Memory, Narrative and Histories, and other associated research and enterprise groups across the University.

We work primarily in the following interdisciplinary and multi-disciplinary research themes:

•             Political ecology and sustainable futures

•             Inequality, violence and social justice

•             Power, space and place

•             The politics of everyday life

•             Materiality, affect and embodiment
