Cultural Geography Research Group - Prof. Hörschelmann

In our research group „Cultural Geography“ we are interested in exploring connections between space and place, politics, culture and society. We focus on two main themes: 1) „Entangled geographies of (in)security“ and 2) „Diversity, migration and belonging in Europe“.

Central to the first theme are the multiple dimensions of human security, how they intersect, how they play out across connected contexts and scales and how they are negotiated by diverse social actors. We examine particularly the multiscalar intersections of geopolitical (in)security with the social and personal (in)securities experienced and (co)produced by diverse social actors across different spheres of everyday life. The second theme concerns questions of identity, belonging and participation in migration societies. Our research here is centrally concerned with the contributions that cultural geography can make to understanding social inclusion and exclusion in Europe.




In our research group we offer diverse research and teaching and we supervise BA and MA theses.
