Geography staff at Canterbury Christ Church University are actively engaged in research that encompasses the breadth of the subject and directly informs our teaching.
Our expertise spans several aspects of human and physical geography and our reputation carries national and international standing, particularly within the global cartographic and urban economic geography research communities.
Staff regularly present their research at international conferences and publish in peer-reviewed journals (see staff profiles for details) and are always keen to share their expertise.
Research in Geography falls under the following themes:
Research outputs in Geography contributed to the Politics and International Studies Unit of Assessment (UoA) in REF2014, with the majority of the cluster’s submissions classed from ‘world leading’ to ‘internationally recognised’.
The strategies used for, and depiction of, service station locations on promotional road maps – an in-depth review from the earliest examples to the era of online mapping.
The Cartographic Output of the Military Topographic Directorate of the Soviet Union
Social histories and biodiversity of agroforestry homegardens on Mt Kilimanjaro
We offer a range of paid internships to our Events, Leisure and Tourism students, offering the chance to collaborate with us on important research.
Michael Boorman investigated the ways in which maps are portrayed in the broadsheet media. During his internship he studied a range of newspapers to look at exactly how maps are presented via media outlets. He looked at the size, colour and style of the maps, and used this information to add to the University's research in this area.
Josh Lemm completed an internship in Geography, mapping planned development proposals to assess whether they were in sustainable locations.
