Cultural Geography is one of the most vibrant areas of geographical research, encompassing a wide range of issues including the study of space, place and time in culture, as well as the analysis of cultural elements such as artefacts, tools, techniques, attitudes, customs, languages and religious beliefs.
Providing a retrospective as well as a prospective take on modern cultural geography, this collection contains a range of diverse material to provide both an historical resource, tracking the marking of the field, and a map of contemporary themes and obsessions. Emphasizing the multiplicity of theoretical and substantive concerns in cultural geography, it focuses on the area’s interfaces with science studies, cultural studies, post-colonial studies and environmental history, thus ensuring that is an important resource for both student and scholar alike.
