The Department of Geography at King’s College London produces world-leading and internationally-excellent critical research in the geographical disciplines, research which both challenges and supports academic theory, public policy and social practice. We work across scales from local to global in the broad fields of environment, society, politics and development.
Our research culture encourages a balance between collaborative research and personal scholarship which enables us to offer a collective presence and individual leadership in Geography and its interdisciplinary family. Our work is international in outlook and emphasises the synthetic potential of Geography as an integrative field of study. Our research ethos is one of inspiration, innovation and excellence, embracing undergraduate and graduate students and research and academic staff.
Our research is organised through five Research Domains and five Activity Hubs. Research Domains identify the primary research capabilities of the Department, the core structure through which essential elements of our research environment are managed. Activity Hubs are action-oriented concentrations of research activity, drawing expertise from across the Research Domains, allowing strategic interfacing of our work with academic and stakeholder organisations outside the university.
