Social and Cultural Geography

social and cultural geography

Social and Cultural geography are diverse sub-disciplines within the broader discipline of Geography that study human interactions and everyday practices within place and space, as well as the ways in which people imagine and understand themselves and their relationships to the world around them. Consideration is given to the production and representation of social identities, cultures, and landscapes as well as to the ways in which humans relate to places, organize themselves within places, create homes and broader ideas of territory, and challenge others' use of space. Such socio-spatial relations necessarily have important urban, economic, and political dimensions and are embedded in complex ways in the scales of the body, home, neighbourhood, city, region, nation, and globe.
