Course Summary

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.
