Human geography studies the relationship between humans, space, and place, and how they influence one another. The links between social processes and practices and their spatial organization and temporal changes are the focus of observations in this discipline. The regionalizations that are produced in this context on a continuous and day-to-day basis manifest themselves in a permanent process of border demarcations, territorializations, and state boundaries that reach from the local to the global level. At the same time, cultural artifacts, practices, and representations play a prominent role in this production of space. Reconstructing and understanding the context-bound geographical significance of these factors in the social production of space is at the heart of human geography. The Human Geography Group specializes in particular in the study of human–environment relations and the relations between society and nature, as well as geographical development research and social urban and tourism research.
