Social Anthropology: Research


Environments & Co-Species Landscapes


In the context of anthropogenic changes to the global climate we set out to extend our understanding of relationships between humans and their environments.

Our research is concerned with planned and unanticipated impacts of humans on place, exploring how projects to improve the human condition harness and transform the environments we inhabit, engaging with political conflicts over access to natural resources and the mobilisation of the environment in struggles over culture and history.

These interests extend further to consider how human relationships with other species shape our landscapes, and to explore the challenges and problems of co-habitation.
