Human Geography

Human Geography

Human geography (aka anthropogeography) is the branch of geography which studies spatial relationships between human communities, cultures, and economies and their interactions with the environment. Examples include urban sprawl and urban redevelopment.

If we could travel back in time about 60,000 years, human geography would only embrace Africa. After our ancestors migrated out of Africa, they spread throughout Eurasia and somehow rafted to Australia.

Humans apparently migrated into the New World somewhere between 15,000-30,000 years ago. Today, people live just about everywhere, including Antarctica. Some people even make space their temporary home.

As a political activist and philosopher, I have a special interest in political geography.
