Human Geography focuses on spaces and places. This encompasses spatial structures and patterns of social interaction, as e.g. visible in the architectural structures of cities or in the spatial organization of economic areas. But it also includes spaces in our minds, geographical imaginations and the symbolic character of places. The interactions between regions (e.g. the worldwide economic networks, the global networks of knowledge etc.) as well as the interdependencies between different spatial levels (global – national – regional – local) are particularly relevant for geographers. Human Geography is the science of the spatial organization of human action and the relationships between society and environment (for more details, please see the homepage of Prof. Gebhardt).
