You can find a link here to the human geography research conducted at the University of Liverpool. If we follow Task 2.1, we can see that very different types of projects are conducted in the department. Some staff fall under the remit of population geography (exploring socio-spatial inequalities, housing segregation, health and wellbeing indicators and the correlation between place and crime). Others fall under the banner of social, cultural and political geography (exploring the experiences of Polish migrants in the UK; the use of alternative currencies to foster community activism; and the role of the body in research practice). These human geographers clearly use different methods to do their work: population geographers use maps, surveys and statistical models; social, cultural and political geographers use archives, walking interviews, oral histories, ethnographies and policy and textual analysis. We can see here that these geographers ask very different questions. Ultimately this is driven by different ways of knowing the world.
