Explore our range of research.
Durham Health and Social Theory Group
We are focused on regional, national and global trends such as climate change, health trends, community-based health programmes and health behaviours.
We are interested in what is 'new' about contemporary urbanism, including the techniques through which cities are governed, the how lives are lived.
Geographies of Life
The boundaries of life and non-life, and human and non-human life, are at stake across a range of contemporary scientific, social and economic.
Colonialism, Neo-colonialism and Ecology
Global discourses on the distributed responsibility of the current climate crisis often ignore the colonial histories of exploitation that continue.
Our research is inspired by the political urgencies of the present, while seeking broader historical contexts and conceptual links.
