Academia Europaea Knowledge Hub and Institute of Political Science at University of Wrocław invited to a public lecture by Anne Buttimer on Changing Perspectives on Society and Environment: Retrospect and Prospect.
Anne Buttimer is a Emeritus Professor of Geography of the University College Dublin. Her main fields of scholarship were the history and philosophy of science, focused on the geographical thought and practice, and the interactions of science and policy.
In her long academic career her interests were urban and social geography, migration and identity, environmental experience, nature and culture, environment and sustainable development and human dimensions of global change.
She wrote several books about these subjects, for example ‘Dwelling, place, and environment: toward a phenomenology of person and world’ (1985) with David Seamon and Robert Mugerauer. She did empirical studies on the human experience of place, space and movement and wrote the book ‘The human experience of space and place’ (1980) on this subject, with David Seamon.
