About This Course
Geography research at Bangor covers both human and physically aligned work, with a strong interdisciplinarity and applied focus, addressing policy issues and conducting action research with stakeholder groups.
We work in a range of contexts internationally, studying processes and interactions at a range of scales – from global to regional, through to site-specific cases.
Topics covered encompass:
- Rural land-use change and controversies (e.g. Brexit & rewilding)
- Sustainable communities, tourism and eco-developments (e.g. food festivals & nature-based approaches)
- Human-nature relations and environmental governance (e.g. payments for ecosystem services & social forestry)
- Food values, justice and poverty (e.g. food banks & redistribution networks)
- Participatory approaches, citizen science and knowledge-politics (from mobile based surveys to post-truth debates)
- Long-term river response to environmental change
- Geoarchaeology of alluvial environments
- Process geomorphology
- Reconstruction of terrestrial glacial environments
- Catchment Science and Modelling
- Alluvial Geochemistry and impact of PHEs on river systems
