Welcome from the chair of population and social geography

Here you will find information about our teaching and research.

At present, our work concentrates on social networks and the construction of communities (e.g. migrant networks and translocality), on the construction of nature (e.g. climate change, natural hazards), and conflicts around resource management (e.g. water). Our research is organised around various key concepts such as risk, practices, discourse, emotion and networks. Regionally, we currently focus on Africa, Europe, the USA and South Korea.

We hope that this website provides you with an overview of our activities and that you enjoy browsing it. If you would like further information, please do not hesitate to contact us directly.

Best wishes,

The population and social geography team
