About Mirek Dymitrow

Primary research areas
My areas of concentration include critical, historical, political, social and cultural geography, Science and Technology Studies (STS), social psychology and philosophy of science. My main research is concerned with conceptualization of 'rural/urban' in various European contexts and its material effects. Research interests also include the problematic of knowledge production as well as problems and causes of social deprivation in the face of overarching sustainability goals.
