Cultural Geography Group
The Cultural Geography (GEO) chair group is committed to social theory in all its spatial articulations. The group advances creative, critical-constructive scholarship through exploring the ecological and social challenges facing all life on earth.
Researching space, place and culture, engaging with current, historic and future dynamics of societies globally, the group pays special attention to questions of inequality, exclusion, mobility, plurality along with deploying critical tourism studies to all aspects of social and environmental sciences, unravelling relational complexities in wilderness to urban settings. Thereby the group translates knowledge into practical action in four closely related fields of application. These are: health & care, tourism, nature and landscape.

For the urgent challenges within the domain of tourism, there are no clear-cut solutions. However, by executing high-quality scientific research, helping to translate our knowledge into practice worldwide and by training professionals and students, we aim to contribute to sustainable tourism development.
