Cultural Geography

Welcome to the group of cultural geography!

In the group of cultural geography we investigate how social and discursive realities and rules are produced and reproduced by individuals or groups of actors. We ask how these realities and rules determine or influence the scopes of action and political decision with spatial relevance.

In order to reveal the diversity of opportunity for action, regulations and systems of meaning as well as actors’ corresponding patterns of actions are being studied in varying contexts and spatial planes of references (local to global). The different opportunities for action then become negotiable.
