Cultural Geography

Cultural geography studies the relationship between people, customs, and geography. Cultural geography studies people’s cultural values, behaviors, discursive and material expressions, and artefacts, as well as society’s cultural diversity and heterogeneity, how cultures are spread over space, how places and identities are formed, how people make sense of places and create senses of place, and how people develop and communicate information and meaning.
