Society, Space and Environment Research and Enterprise Group

Organization profile

Profile Information

The Society, Space & Environment (SEE) Research and Enterprise Group brings together academics and PhD students from human geography and associated fields and disciplines working in areas of socio-cultural, political and environmental geographies, particularly as they relate to twenty first century concerns. The group shares a distinctly geographical approach that highlights the role of space, place and materiality in producing inequalities and in configuring social 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 SSE are also active participants of the Centre for Spatial, Environmental and Cultural Politics, 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
  • Power, space and place
  • The politics of everyday life
  • Materiality, affect and embodiment
