About this research group
The research group Society, environment and culture broadly conducts research on the political, social and cultural aspects of gender, minorities and welfare; local and regional development; and the societal aspects of environmental challenges and climate change, and more. Our research often includes historical and comparative dimensions, and is typically politically relevant. We aim to combine a focus on broad issues with research that is directly relevant in local and regional contexts, and to apply international, national and regional perspectives. The group’s researchers have diverse background from the humanities and social sciences, including history, cultural studies, anthropology, sociology and political science.
The Research Leader is Simon Neby.
